"SMMA is a not for profit small grow co-op of legal Washington State Medical Marijuana patients and providers. Our goal is to create a safe and legal resource for patients and providers."
Seattle Medical Marijuana Association is a small grow co-op consisting of qualified marijuana patients linked together by their mutual need to produce the highest quality organic medicine for personal use. It is explicitly designed to conform with Washington State laws protecting qualified patients from prosecution for possession of medical marijuana. We strive to provide a safe place for patients that is a model of compassion and legal integrity. The SMMA operates in strict compliance with the letter and the spirit of Washington's medical marijuana laws.
As distribution of cannabis remains illegal, cultivation is the only method by which cannabis may be obtained under state law. While not specifically sanctioned under RCW: 69.51A, collective cultivation is also not denied. Due to the costly high-tech equipment and resources required for indoor cultivation of medical cannabis, the majority of patients are unable to grow their own medicine. Thus, collective cultivation has become the only viable legal option for most patients. We provide a comfortable location with safe access to a wide variety of medication including dried marijuana, edibles, extracts, and concentrates.

State Limits Pot Growers to One License
Text from The Center For Legal Cannabis - Editor: Ben Livingston
The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board announced that they are limiting cannabis business applicants to one pot grow each, down from the three-license limit they set initially. The move overcomes a troublesome hurdle the board encountered: how to equitably distribute the two million square feet of grow space the agency set as a limit for the new industry when 2,858 applications requested to grow over 40 million square feet of pot.
Additionally, the board is reducing by 30% the amount of grow space that licensees may produce. The board initial created three tiers for 2,000, 10,000, and 30,000 square foot grows, which will now become 1,400, 7,000, and 21,000 square foot licenses.
One License per Pot Grower, State Says
FEB 19 | The Stranger
I-502 implementation chief Randy Simmons tells me final inspections are scheduled for this week, and they expect to issue grow licenses the first week of March. Applicants with more than one grow application may withdraw the extras for a refund, otherwise they'll be left in the queue for when state regulators decide they need more pot production. A new application window won't be opened until all those waiting applications are exhausted, so I expect few people will seek a refund. Here's more coverage:

House votes to gut medical marijuana
The Washington State House of Representatives passed a bill to butcher our voter-approved medical cannabis law, which many elected state leaders have held in contempt for years. This year the official reason for the mutilation attempt is an unfounded fear that allowing sick people to cheaply produce their own pot will cause our voter-approved legal pot experiment to miss out on some additional revenue potential. To forcefully capture that revenue, HB 2149 would:
Criminalize patients who grow marijuana together in small groups;
Reduce plant limits from 15 to 3 blooming plants;
Reduce possession limits from 24 ounces to 3 ounces;
Create a taxpayer-funded mandatory government registry for all medical marijuana patients; and
Criminalize home-growing patients who don't register their three-plant grow with the state.
Legislative hotline is 800-LOAN-000 (toll free, loan nothing). The bill has a hearing this Thursday, February 27 at 10 a.m. in the Senate Health Care committee. Committee members are:

Legislative weed watch
Legislative hotline is 800-LOAN-000, as in "toll free, loan nothing." According to the cutoff calendar, February 18 was the last day to consider bills in their house of origin, unless they are considered "necessary to implement budget." These bills cleared their house of origin and are still alive:
HB 1597 - Goodman - Making marijuana law technical corrections.
HB 1888 - Shea - Regarding industrial hemp.
HB 2149 - Cody - Concerning medical marijuana.
HB 2405 - Buys - Regarding hemp as a component of commercial animal feed.
HB 2706 - WSLCB - Ensuring safe, responsible, and legal acquisition of marijuana by adults.
Note the industrial hemp bills I completely missed in previous updates! Additionally, these bills have recent activity and appear to be moving forward, though they haven't cleared their house of origin:
SB 5887 - Rivers - Merging the medical marijuana system with the recreational marijuana system.
SB 6505 - Hargrove - Deny standard tax breaks to cannabis businesses.
SB 6542 - Kohl-Welles - Establishing the state cannabis industry coordinating committee.
