OLYMPIA, WA - A pair of pot bills are moving through the Washington legislature in hopes of reconciling the medical marijuana market and the recreational market.
Both bills would lessen the amount of marijuana and plants that patients can have as well as get rid of collective gardens. Under the measures, a patient registry would be set up complete with an authorization card that would give patients a tax break at certain stores.
The bills would also allow stores to sell both medical and recreational marijuana or choose to only sell to patients.
Lawmakers have had concerns over the more unregulated system for medical marijuana that could undercut the taxed, recreational industry.
