Washington State was one of the first states to legalize marijuana, however, it’s still the only legal state that does not allow home cultivation. Technically Nevada does not allow home cultivation within 25 miles of a dispensary, but in theory, home cultivation is still permitted. Home cultivation for adult use is prohibited in Washington State with zero exceptions.
The new legislative session in Washington has seen the issue of home cultivation brought up, with legislation being introduced in both legislative chambers. If you live in Washington State, please use the action tool found below to contact your lawmakers and urge them to support home cultivation. Per NORML’s action center:
