- Who can consume legal marijuana?

Under state law, it remains a felony to sell to minors or furnish minors. Keeping cannabis away from minors is one of the eight priorities laid down by the U.S. Department of Justice in allowing Washington to proceed with their legal cannabis experiments.
- How old must you be to legally buy or possess cannabis in Washington?
You have to be at least 21 to legally buy or possess cannabis. Minors cannot go into stores or any state-licensed cannabis businesses. Out of state or out of country customer are welcome with proper identification.
- The initiative says I cannot consume cannabis in public. What is the definition of “in public"?
Initiative 502 states that it is unlawful to open/consume a package of cannabis or cannabis infused product in view of the general public.
- Can customers consume in a retail store?
No. On-premise consumption is not allowed under Initiative 502.
- What is THC?
THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis. Basically, it’s the primary chemical in getting you high. Pot contains various levels of THC and other cannabinoids, which are chemical compounds found in cannabis that affect neurotransmitters in your brain.
- Can cannabis purchased legally in Washington be taken to other states?
No. Cannabis and cannabis products are to be consumed in Washington State.
- How is it going to be taxed?
Effective July 1, 2015, tax reforms defined in HB 2136 change the existing marijuana excise tax structure. A 37 percent marijuana excise tax must now be collected exclusively at the retail level. In addition, B&O taxes on the production and local retail sales taxes apply.
- Is cannabis addictive?
Not for most people, according to the UW Institute. It doesn’t take priority over responsibilities at home, school, work or with friends. For some, though, cannabis use looks a lot like addiction. They want to cut back or quit, but they don’t follow through. Important things, such as friendships, are sacrificed so they can get high. Some scientists estimate that 9 percent, or 1-in-11 cannabis smokers, develops the symptoms of addiction. To avoid such problems, the UW Institute advises getting high once a week or less.
- Is driving while high dangerous?
Yes. Driving high increases the risk of accidents, and is illegal. Driving high can cause impairment, such as slower reaction time and divided attention, or distraction. If you must drive, give yourself three or four hours if you’ve inhaled cannabis. If you’ve ingested an edible, the safety margin needs to be hours longer. You may receive a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) citation if you are pulled over and the officer suspects you have been smoking or consuming marijuana products.
