The 411 on Washington’s new I-502 rules: Top 10 things to know
Listed below are the top 10 things you should know if you’re looking to operate a cannabusiness in Washington State. This list was compiled using Chapter 314–55 of the Washington Administrative Code (WAC): Marijuana Licenses, Application Process, Requirements, and Reporting, adopted by the Washington State Liquor Control Board on July 7, 2013. Familiarize yourself with the code if you plan to get into the game. Also, and not to be too obvious, be aware of what role you will be fulfilling — be it producer, processor or retailer — as they each have specific guidelines you’ll need to follow.

1. Extracts can’t be sold separately: WAC 314–55–079 (2) states: “Marijuana extracts, such as hash, hash oil, shatter, and wax can be infused in products sold in a marijuana retail store, but RCW 69.50.354 does not allow the sale of extracts that are not infused in products. A marijuana extract does not meet the definition of a marijuana-infused product per RCW 69.50.101.” This means that you can infuse these variants into products you sell, but selling them individually is prohibited.
