“Current Washington law provides an affirmative defense to criminal prosecution if a qualified patient or designated provider possesses up to 24 ounces of useable marijuana or 15 marijuana plants, or participates in a collective garden. Patients and designated providers age 21 or older may purchase and possess marijuana through the recreational market but are subject to the limitations in chapter 69.50 RCW. Currently, any adult age 21 or older may buy any combination of the following from a licensed retail store:
One ounce of usable marijuana;
Sixteen ounces of marijuana-infused product in solid form;
Seventy-two ounces of marijuana-infused product in liquid form; or seven grams of marijuana concentrate
The laws relating to possession amounts for patients and designated providers will change on July 1, 2016… Beginning July 1, 2016, all non-licensed medical marijuana dispensaries must close down. However, medical marijuana patients can grow up to 15 plants if authorized by healthcare practitioner,” Medical Marijuana Other Frequently Asked Questions [Accessed March 01, 2016]
