Legislative Committee Considers Changes to Washington’s Cannabis Regulations

A legislative committee in Washington is considering changes to the state’s cannabis regulations, according to The Spokesman-Review, including altering the rules regarding product labeling and how to track the research supported by cannabis tax revenue.

The House Commerce and Gaming Committee held a recent “work session” while the Legislature is adjourned, the news outlet reported, and discussed whether to increase the amount of information included on cannabis product labels.

The committee also discussed how to keep track of the increasing number of cannabis research studies that are supported by a portion of the tax revenue generated from legal cannabis sales, including a range of studies conducted by Washington State University, according to The Spokesman-Review.

In addition, the legislature could take up a bill next year to limit cannabis concentrates to 10% THC, and the state’s current potency limits for cannabis products were also considered at the recent work session, the news outlet reported.
