Cannabis Reform

WSWA believes the federal government should respect the right of states to establish a safe and well-regulated cannabis marketplace.

WSWA has developed policy principles for the federal regulation of cannabis. The principles are based on the federal regulations that govern alcohol and focus on the permitting of producers and distributors, proper labelling and testing of products, efficient tax collection, and measures to ensure public health and safety. 


Core to these principles is the belief that all businesses engaged in the production and interstate transport of cannabis should be federally regulated, all cannabis products should be taxed, and states should have the authority to enact stronger measures within their borders.
