WSLCB Offers Workshops on the Marijuana Licensing Process

The Washington State Liquor Control Board is conducting workshops throughout Washington to educate all those who are interested in the marijuana licensing process. Space is limited, however, and only for those who are seriously interested in pursuing a license to be a marijuana producer, processor, or retailer.

In order to attend a workshop, applicants must be registered with the WSLCB and businesses are only allowed to send two representatives to one workshop. According to the WSLCB website, their mission is to "promote public safety by consistent and fair administration of liquor and cannabis laws through education, voluntary compliance, responsible sales, and preventing the misuse of alcohol, cannabis, and tobacco."

A complete listing of the seminars is available online.

The WSLCB has also published a timeline for the licensing process.

Oct. 16 – Board Adoption of permanent rules
Oct. 17 – Nov. 1 – Marijuana Licensing Education Seminars
