What To Know About Cannabis In Seattle

Cannabis may be legal in Seattle, but that doesn’t mean you can light up anywhere - or with anyone. In the state of Washington, anyone of the age of 21, with a valid horizontal ID, and those over 18 with a medical marijuana card, can purchase pot legally. Valid forms of ID include a driver's license from any state, a passport, a Military ID, or a Tribal ID. If you’re planning to visit Seattle from out of town, you’ll need to plan ahead to ensure that you’re able to legally enjoy your ganja on the go.

Flying In/Out Of SeaTac

It is important to note that while cannabis has been decriminalized throughout the PNW, it is still illegal to consume cannabis in public places. Smoking in public could result in a hefty fine. Additionally, it is illegal to carry cannabis products over state lines. So, if you stock up in Seattle, make sure you consume it all before you leave.

Driving With Cannabis

Once you stock up on goodies for your trip, it's important to ensure you are able to travel with them safely. Similarly, to alcohol, it is illegal to drive with open containers of cannabis in your car, or to consume cannabis while driving. When traveling around the state, it is safest to store unopened containers in the trunk of your car or in a space that is out of reach of the driver and passengers.

Smoking In Seattle

Washington’s cannabis law dictates that cannabis should only be consumed in a private residence, specifically “inside the home or in a fenced yard — completely out of the view of the general public”. This applies to both medicinal and recreational cannabis users.

The key to navigate this when visiting from out of town is to plan ahead. It’s important to note that there are some hotels and vacation rentals that offer cannabis-friendly accommodations. When planning your trip, make sure to search for 420-friendly properties.

The good news is, if you’re caught consuming cannabis in Seattle, you’ll likely avoid jail time. Seattle law treats public cannabis consumption the same as it does drinking alcohol in public. In most cases, you’ll simply receive a $27 fine. To learn more, visit the Washington Liquor and Cannabis Board website here.
