WSLCB: Interim Policy for Cannabis Retail Title Certificates explained

Today, the #LCB released a new ruling "Interim Policy for Cannabis Retail Title Certificates". What does this mean?  Here's a brief section of the released policy article, which clarifies the end result.

Currently, licensees in municipalities which have prohibited cannabis sales have been obligated to spend cash to keep their licensed business as though it was operating actively to maintain the license - even though it could not generate any income.

Today's ruling affords licensees the opportunity to request a Retail Title Certificate which allows them a great amount of freedom from obligation with no expectation of recompense/recoup of losses - not even through traditional means like business tax write offs (see this article about 280E).

Right now, this is an Interim Policy, and a rule is in the early proposal stages.

So essentially, this is another set of requirements to meet (there's most of a page), but then you can 'close up shop' literally - because you don't even need a physical location - until there's a chance to move or modify the license, or the municipality reverses the decision. Who knows how many will meet the requirements set forth in the linked article at the LCB site?

Sorry if this is a bit much Steve 😂 please, run 👌 #SteveforWashington 💚

Pilgrimage to 52nd St. Glass

After CannaCon 2018, my wife and I had dinner and Pilgrimage to 52nd St. Glass with @stevethegrownup and @mrsjessylee, owners of Prohibition Glass in Kennewick, WA. They're regular customers, to the point where some of the headiest stuff was on hold for them -
like the dank Supreme NY x Louis Vuitton lighter and the Goyard torch with Steve's name on it.

The art below is from a huge variety of artists, too many to fully list. Hope you enjoy.
