Implementation & Regulation for I-502. The Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB or LCB) is the government agency in charge of the implementation and licensing of I-502 recreational marijuana in Washington: The WSLCB has created rules regarding security minimums and the prevention of minors’ access to marijuana. I-502 does not preempt federal law. Presently Washington State residents involved in marijuana production, processing, and retailing could still be subject to prosecution if the federal government chooses to do so.

Due to the nature of your business and its relationship to recreational marijuana, it is necessary to remind you that even though recreational marijuana is now legal in Washington, the manufacture, distribution, and possession of marijuana is still a federal crime under the Controlled Substances Act. No document or legal advice that we provide to you is intended to assist you in either violating or complying with federal law. There is also a risk of losing the attorney-client privilege under the crime/fraud exemption, depending on the evolution in the laws and enforcement of those laws by the authorities.
