Events and Calendars

Cannabis Observer creates and maintains calendars of cannabis-related policymaking events at legislative and regulatory organizations. Visit each organization's landing screen on our website to access embedded versions of their calendars and add them to your Google or Apple products.


Cannabis Observer's observations are insightful distillations and analyses of cannabis-related policymaking events including public meetings, work groups, legislative hearings, and press conferences. Our citizen observers usually attend events in person; record them as permitted by law and convention; gather associated public information; and condense sometimes very lengthy proceedings into high-level takeaways and in-depth analysis. Into every composition we write, we infuse our knowledge of the history of cannabis policymaking in Washington state, its legislative and regulatory processes, the inside players, and the outside games. We are writing a history of the unfolding story of cannabis policymaking in Washington state.
