Legal Pot Prompts Question: What About Hash?
Washington state's new legal pot law is prompting a conversation about the place of hash and other potent, concentrated marijuana products in the industry.
The law doesn't allow the sale of pure hash or hash oil at state-licensed stores. But state regulators have issued draft rules saying the products can be sold — as long as they're mixed with something else, such as brownies, sodas or even a tiny drop of glycerin.
Substance abuse prevention experts say the way the state is interpreting the law will allow people to buy up to 16 ounces of almost-pure hash oil in solid form or 72 ounces in liquid form — vastly more than customers need for personal use.
Alison Holcomb, the Seattle lawyer who led the legal-pot campaign, says the Legislature might want to put new limits on sales of concentrated marijuana before the stores open next year.
