Following close on the heels of Governor Jay Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board is now allowing curbside sales to all adult retail marijuana customers, subject to the following restrictions:
- IDs must be checked — no one in the car may be less than 21 years of age;
- Curbside sales areas must be stationary and physically designated on the leasehold property, preferably as close to the building as possible. Examples of physical designations for curbside service include:
- Tape or painted parking spots for vehicle parking;
- Cones or signage for vehicle parking;
- Where possible, video cameras should be monitoring and recording the designated sales area;
- Outdoor sales from a tent or kiosk are not allowed.
Notably, the LCB is not yet allowing drive-through marijuana sales. Rules and policies, however, continue to evolve at a rapid pace in light of COVID-19. Stay tuned to this blog for regular updates on industry rules and regulations.
