Policy Statement on Title Certificates for Cannabis Retail Licensees in Jurisdictions Where Local Ordinances Prohibit Cannabis Sales

Consistent with RCW 34.05.230, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) has published a policy statement concerning Title Certificates for cannabis retail licensees in jurisdictions where local ordinances prohibit cannabis sales.

Notice of WSLCB Policy Statement #PS21-03 was filed with the Washington State Code Reviser on July 7, 2021 as WSR 21-14-110. The policy statement replaces Board Interim Policy (BIP) 04-2018, rescinded at the July 7, 2021 Board meeting.

Policy statements are agency-level documents declaring plans or intentions of an agency. Policies are different from procedures, standard operating procedures, or guidance because they apply to the entire organization and are primarily intended to set direction. In contrast, procedures or guidelines typically include specific instructions used to accomplish defined tasks that may be described in a policy.
