Marijuana Control Act
The Department of Safety and Homeland Security (DSHS) will work in partnership with the Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) to implement House Bill 1 and House Bill 2 (the Marijuana Control Act). Creating the framework for the production, manufacture, and sale of legal recreational marijuana involves many important steps.
Over the next several months, the State will propose new health and safety regulations on marijuana cultivation and will hire and train new staff to manage licensure and enforcement under the Act. Interested parties will have an opportunity to comment on the proposed regulations. The State anticipates that licensure applications will be available by May 2024.
