January 26 2021: Washington State legislature considering allowing cannabis home grows

There’s a fresh push to let people in Washington grow recreational marijuana at home reports KIRO 7 News..

The state legislature is considering making it legal for an adult to have six cannabis plants.


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).
