When the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board approved medical marijuana sales for adults in January, it was hailed as a historic step forward in the fight against the nation’s drug crisis.
But, the agency also issued a draft regulation that had the potential to drastically change the industry’s business model.
The draft regulation also called for patients to get their prescriptions filled in a dispensary.
The proposal, called a “pharmacy model” by critics, would allow for the sale of marijuana and medical cannabis in storefronts at no additional cost than traditional stores.
In its draft proposal, the Washington Liquor & Cannabis Board called for a dispensary model.
While the proposal was approved by the Liquor Commission, which is an independent agency, the state board, in partnership with the Washington Department of Health and the Washington Health Department, has yet to finalize the regulation.
“If the proposal goes forward, I believe it would be a tremendous opportunity for the industry to grow, and for the state to be one of the largest producers of cannabis in the country,” said state Representative Tim Walberg, a Republican from Seattle who introduced the bill, a bill that has garnered bipartisan support.
Under the proposal, dispensaries would be allowed to sell only to patients who have been diagnosed with chronic pain, or for chronic conditions that require multiple visits, such as Crohn’s disease, cancer and epilepsy.
They would also have to sell at a discount to anyone who is already a licensed medical marijuana patient.
The proposed model also calls for dispensaries to sell to people who are already licensed medical patients, and to allow those with certain chronic conditions to buy a full ounce of medical marijuana for their condition.
The Washington Health Commissioner and the D.C. Department of Public Health have been working on a similar proposal that would allow marijuana to be sold to anyone in the city.
It would also allow dispensaries to provide a full retail market, similar to other retailers.
Both of these proposals have received the support of Washington’s leading medical marijuana advocates, and both have been rejected by the state legislature.
With the new regulations, medical marijuana is going to be available in the Seattle area in a storefront.
But that won’t happen for years.
It will likely take a couple of years to get the full retail marijuana industry established in Seattle, according to the state.
And that means that Washington will be the only state that has yet-to-issue regulatory rules for medical marijuana.
Meanwhile, many businesses have been able to purchase cannabis legally from online dispensaries, but only after they have been approved by a doctor.
Under the new draft rules, businesses could purchase cannabis from medical dispensaries if they met the following criteria: The medical marijuana applicant must have a medical condition, the patient must have received a diagnosis of the condition, and the business must be located in a licensed retail location.
The medical dispensary must be approved by two independent independent medical professionals, who have to be trained in how to conduct a medical marijuana application.
The business must have completed a three-step process that includes an application form, a list of the qualified patients, an interview with the medical marijuana professional, and a review of the medical cannabis application.
Businesses that want to obtain a medical cannabis license in the state must complete a four-step application process, including an interview, a background check and an application.
