One of the more progressive cannabis states, Washington has a fairly well-established place in the exploding marijuana industry.
With the state one of the first to legalise the plant for medicinal use back in 1998, recreational cannabis legality would follow in 2012, making Washington the first U.S. state to legalize the possession of recreational marijuana, and the 2nd (after California) to authorise sales of the plant for recreational use.
But what are the exact laws regarding cannabis possession and is it legal to grow your own marijuana plants in Washington? Let’s take a closer look at the states most important cannabis laws.
Washington Cannabis Law
Emerging as something of a cannabis tourism hot-spot, recreational usage has surged since cannabis was legalized in Washington with its adult-use cannabis market generating a staggering $1.1 billion in 2019 alone.
For those aged 21 or older, it is legally permissible to possess the following in Washington state.
- 1 Oz of cannabis flower
- Cannabis-related paraphernalia like papers, pipes etc
- 16 Oz of solid marijuana-infused product like edibles
- 72 ounces of a liquid-infused cannabis product
- 7 grams of cannabis concentrate
For medical users, possession limits are higher. All cardholders in the state may possess the following:

Can I grow Marijuana in Washington?
Unfortunately, while Washington has legalised both the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana, cultivation is heavily regulated, with only licensed grow facilities permitted to grow cannabis in the state.
However, medical marijuana patients are allowed to grow cannabis at home, but as you would expect, there are some restrictions.
All cardholding patients may cultivate up to 6 cannabis plants in the privacy of their residence. For those with a special dispensation from their doctor, the cultivation of up to 15 plants is permitted. As such, for those cultivating their own cannabis crops, possession limits increase as well to 8 and oz and 16 oz respectively and those that get special dispensation from their doctor may grow up to 15 cannabis plants.
