Washington State Begins Issuing MMJ Endorsements
As part of Washington State’s ongoing effort to roll medical cannabis into the same regulatory system that oversees recreational marijuana businesses, officials have begun issuing endorsements to retailers that meet its medical threshold.
So far, the Liquor and Cannabis Board has handed out 142 medical endorsements, while roughly 1,100 dispensaries have also applied for new state rec licenses, according to the Olympian.
Dispensaries must obtain state permits by July 1 if they want to remain in business. The medical endorsement on top of the rec license will allow stores to sell to MMJ patients as well as rec customers.
