The Craft Cannabis Coalition is actively engaging on issues important to your business. As a CCC member, we deeply value your input. Today we are actively seeking your feedback on two specific bills that would impact our industry.
Cannabis Commission: This bill would create a Washington State Cannabis Research Commission for the enhancement of the safe production of cannabis and to materially advance the industries of growing and processing cannabis. The Commission would be funded by a 0.290% tax on gross proceeds of sales at wholesale of marijuana, including mature marijuana plants, immature marijuana plants or clones, marijuana plant tissue culture, and marijuana seeds; and by a 0.145% surcharge on gross proceeds of sales at wholesale of marijuana products ready for consumer.
Craft Cannabis Production Bill (HB 1260). This bill would establish a new class of craft cannabis licenses, authorize 50 new craft cannabis producer/processor licenses prioritized for social equity applicants, allow for direct sales to consumers by craft cannabis licenssees, and establishes a cannabis policy task force.
Copies of the bills are attached.
