LCB Action: E2SSB 5367 (“THC bill”)  Rulemaking Workshops

As part of the Liquor and Cannabis Board’s (LCB) ongoing rulemaking to implement the legislation, the agency is holding a series of virtual rule workshops in March and April to discuss and gather feedback from interested parties on draft proposed rule language that is being considered.

Several sections of the rules (Chapter 314-55 WAC) require modifications to implement the legislation. Two sessions will be held covering the same topic/rule sections to provide an opportunity for those who are unable to attend one of the sessions an opportunity to engage and provide feedback. There is no need to attend both sessions.

The workshop schedule is provided below with the rule section(s) that will be discussed at the workshop sessions. Additional sessions covering the same topics/rule section may be necessary and the rulemaking workshop schedule is subject to change.
