New Washington State law means some pot stores could be handing out safes
Your next trip to a marijuana store in Washington State could come with a nifty giveaway thanks to the Legislature: A lock box to hide the goods from children and pets.
Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bill Thursday that lets pot stores give out small safes in an effort to stop kids and animals from accidentally eating the drug. Washington’s marijuana laws have strict guidelines for what stores can sell or hand out, so the safes had to be specifically authorized.
House Bill 1250’s sponsor Rep. Dan Griffey, R-Allyn, said Mason County health officials have been pushing for the new law because they have a “large quantity” of small safes they’re planning to supply to the county’s marijuana shops.
