State residency requirements for cannabis sellers aren’t working

Washington State is trying to let only Washington residents sell cannabis.  That’s not holding up.

My friend Crystal Oliver of the Washington Sungrowers Industry Association writes:

We have our own case winding it’s way through the courts: https://cannabis.observer/information_set/thurston-county-superior-court-brinkmeyer-v-wslcb-june-8-2020/ 

They’ve not been able to actually enforce this in WA practically speaking. These [out-of-state] interests just own all the real estate, equipment, and intellectual property of the marijuana business and get paid that way. 

Right now the WA ban on out of state ownership & investment just creates a situation where only those with well-paid, slick attorneys get out of state investment.
