Marijuana law flawed? Transportation security questioned
On Wednesday, the Washington Liquor Control Board will unveil it’s latest update to rules on how legal marijuana businesses will be able to operate.
There’s one part of the law that can’t really be changed, and it could cause concern when it comes to security for future pot growers and retailers.
According to I-502, the law that legalized marijuana last November, “Only the marijuana licensee or an employee of the licensee may transport product.” That means “pot” businesses can not hire out to security firms to transport the product and could make employees, and their vehicles, targets for criminals.
