The Medical Use of Marijuana Act legalized medical marijuana in the Evergreen State in 1998. Despite passage of that Act, medical marijuana activity is currently illegal under state law. Voters, however, legalized the recreational use of marijuana through Initiative 502 in 2012, which is now codified under law at RCW 69.50 and WAC 314-55. The Washington State Liquor Control Board is charged with regulating and issuing marijuana producer, processor, and retailer licenses for the recreational cannabis industry.
