The state legislature is considering making it legal for an adult to have six cannabis plants.1019
It’s already allowed in at least ten other states.
“What is being proposed here would not be a bold experiment, but rather a well-worn path. Crime hasn’t exploded in states that allow home growing and tax revenues have not suffered,” said John Kingsbury of Home Grow Washington at a legislative hearing Jan. 15.
Washington was the second state to open legal marijuana stores after voters passed Initiative 502 in 2012.
That measure did not allow home grows.
“Prohibiting home grow is an antiquated policy and it is time for us to evolve,” said Rep. Shelley Kloba (D-Kirkland).
