Liquor board sets tentative rules for marijuana
Category: Legalization | Posted on Fri, July, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
OLYMPIA – Washington will allow legal marijuana to be grown outside if it has adequate security, under new rules receiving preliminary approval Wednesday by a state board.
The state might allow an unlimited number of marijuana growers and processors, but a limited number of stores where adults can buy the drug for recreational use. The plants and the products made from them will be tracked “from seed to sale” in secure facilities. Growers who break regulations on sales, packaging, transportation or security could lose a fourth of their crop on the second violation in three years, half their crop on the third and lose their license on the fourth.
Advertising of the stores and their products will be strictly limited and not targeted at minors. Legal marijuana being sold in licensed stores will have to come in child-proof packaging and be clearly marked with the level of its intoxicating substance.
But it won’t carry a logo of a marijuana leaf in a green Washington map.
The State Liquor Control Board canned the proposed logo Wednesday and will work on a replacement. Board Chairman Sharon Foster said there are many other logos that use the state map or outline and “we need to have something different.”

Starbucks of Marijuana Coming to San Francisco

The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward making lots of money. That's Jamen Shively's thesis, anyway.
The former Microsoft manager, 45, is embarking on a publicity tour for the marijuana enterprise he's happy to label the "Starbucks" of pot. "Yes, we can" is for Shively "yes, we are big marijuana" -- and he's getting ready for what he believes is The Next Big Thing: legal pot -- everywhere.
With his trusty sidekick, former Mexican president Vicente Fox -- a partner of Shively's in Diego Pellicer, Inc., the nation's first "premium marijuana" retail brand -- in tow, Shively is in San Francisco on Monday. Following a "summit" on marijuana legalization, Fox and Shively will appear at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel to talk about how to make all this a reality.
Is he a visionary -- or, in the words of one expert, a greedhead? Probably both.
