Medical Marijuana in Washington
Voters in the State of Washington have approved Initiative 502 legalizing the possession and use of marijuana for recreational purposes. Medical marijuana patients with a valid authorization form may join the medical marijuana authorization database and receive a medical marijuana recognition card. Joining the authorization database is voluntary and isn't required in order to be a medical marijuana patient unless the patient is under the age of 18. However, the medical marijuana recognition card gives the cardholder many benefits.
Visit the Washington State Department of Health for more information.
