Legal pot-growing will be done indoors, agency declares

OLYMPIA — Anyone who wants to grow marijuana legally in Washington will have to do so indoors, get a license and not have a recent felony conviction, a state agency is proposing in new rules designed to comply with voters’ decision to let adults use the drug for recreational purposes. Sellers will have to be at least 1,000 feet from schools, playgrounds, child care centers, public parks or libraries. The Washington State Liquor Control Board issued its proposed rules for obtaining a license to grow, process or sell legal marijuana this afternoon. It will be taking public comments on the proposal for the next month. Read more about the new rules on the Spin Control blog.
