Wash. House passes bill to allow hash sales

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Washington's House of Representatives has passed a bill to allow sales of marijuana concentrates like hash oil at state-licensed pot shops.

The measure also tweaks Washington's legal marijuana law to allow marijuana processors to sell to other processors. For example, a processor who specializes in making marijuana extracts could provide those to bakers who might use them in brownies.

The bill passed 91-7 Thursday. It goes to the Senate, where it will also require at least a two-thirds vote to amend Initiative 502.

The initiative itself allowed the sale of dried marijuana and marijuana-infused products, but not of marijuana extracts or concentrates. The bill allows people to buy up to 7 grams of those potent products in addition to their one-ounce limit of dried marijuana, 16 ounces of infused solids or 72 ounces of infused liquids.
