Ask WA Lawmakers to Support House Bill 2629 to Legalize Cannabis Cultivation

This petition had 910 supporters

In Washington State the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis is legal for those 21 and older, as is the state-licensed distribution of cannabis and cannabis products. However, the cultivation of any amount of cannabis for personal use remains a class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

To fix this disparity, bipartisan legislation - House Bill 2629 - has been introduced in Washington's House of Representatives to legalize the cultivation of up to six cannabis plants for everyone 21 and older, while allowing them to possess up to 24 ounces harvested from those plants.

This is a common sense measure that would put Washington in line with Colorado and Oregon, two other states which have legalized cannabis and allow personal cultivation. Washington D.C. has also legalized cultivating cannabis for personal use.

Signing this petition will send a letter to every member of Washington's House of Representatives and Senate, as well as Governor Jay Inslee, urging them to support House Bill 2629.
