Invitation: Session on Conceptual Draft Rules about the Social Equity in Cannabis Program – March 23rd
The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) is hosting a Listen and Learn session about conceptual draft rules on the Social Equity in Cannabis Program. The session is designed to get public and licensee feedback on rule concepts before the agency moves toward a rule proposal.
In late October 2021, while awaiting recommendations from the Social Equity in Cannabis Task Force (Task Force), the LCB began to consider amendments to existing rule and new rules that would both support and establish the Social Equity in Cannabis program. The CR 101, or Statement of Inquiry, was filed as WSR 21-22-042 on October 27, 2021.
The Task Force released recommendations on January 6, 2022, and the agency began to draft rules based on those recommendations. The conceptual draft rules can be viewed here.
Please review this guidance document and the session agenda before the forum and come prepared to offer feedback and suggestions for revisions to the draft.
