Subject of Possible Rule Making: The Washington state liquor and cannabis board (WSLCB) is considering amending WAC 314-55-108 to update information related to pesticide action levels of marijuana products.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 69.50.342 and 69.50.345.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Rule updates on this subject are needed to update chemical information about some types of pesticides included in quality control testing. Updates are also needed to amend existing rule language concerning remediation of marijuana products that have failed quality control testing, and to update the term "quality assurance testing" to "quality control testing." This update will help to protect public health and safety by keeping pesticide action level information and remediation guidelines current.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: WSLCB will coordinate with the Washington state department of health and the Washington state department of agriculture, as may be necessary.
Process for Developing New Rule: Collaborative rule making.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Jeff Kildahl, Policy and Rules Coordinator, P.O. Box 43080, Olympia, WA 98504, phone 360-664-1781, fax 360-664-9689, email, website
