Invitation: Join a Second Conversation on Cannabis Plant Canopy Rules Modernization, November 29, 1-2:30 p.m.

The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) is hosting a second conversation on Tuesday, November 29 from 1-2:30 p.m. to explore ideas for modernizing the rules for cannabis plant canopy (WAC 314-55-075).

This conversation is the second in a series of World Café style discussions. Our first session, held on October 4, 2022 can be viewed here. World Café is a participatory workshop method, suitable for groups from 12 to 2,000 participants. It is a structured conversational process intended to facilitate open conversation and discussion. It links ideas among a group to access the “collective intelligence” of participants, and to understand/learn from multiple points of view. The focus is on exploring/innovating on themes rather than on problem solving. The format is designed as a forum for creative/open thinking, and is not suited for scenarios where there is a pre-determined answer or solution. You can learn more about the World Café method here.

During this event, hosts and participants will:

  • Focus on what matters
  • Contribute your thinking
  • Speak your mind and heart
  • Listen to understand
  • Link and connect ideas
  • Listen together for insights and deeper questions

Active participation in discussion is a foundational element of the World Café model. We ask that if you are not planning to actively engage in discussion and wish to observe the conversations – whether in the breakout rooms, the larger group, or both, that you do not attend the event, and instead wait for the recording to become available for observation.

The LCB encourages public suggestions and input on plant canopy rule concepts before the agency decides whether to move forward with development of conceptual draft rules.

To provide public notice that the LCB is considering possible rule changes, the LCB filed a CR 101 Preproposal Statement of Inquiry as WSR 22-18-058 on August 31, 2022. This notice was published in the Washington State Register on September 21, 2022.
