    Someone running a certain co-op told me the other day that WA is offering a permit to grow plants, and that is will cost 75,000$.....he said this will allow us to grow more than the 15? Is this straight BS or can someone shed some light on this

    As it is you can grow more than 15 plants for personal medical purposes. See below WAC 246-75-010 section 3a
    http://apps.leg.wa.gov/wac/default.aspx?cite=246-75-010
    WAC 246-75-010



    (1) Purpose. The purpose of this section is to define the amount of marijuana a qualifying patient could reasonably expect to need over a sixty-day period for their personal medical use. It is intended to:

    (a) Allow medical practitioners to exercise their best professional judgment in the delivery of medical treatment;

    (b) Allow designated providers to assist patients in the manner provided in chapter 69.51A RCW; and

    (c) Provide clarification to patients, law enforcement and others in the use of medical marijuana.

    (2) Definitions.

    (a) "Designated provider" means a person as defined in RCW 69.51A.010.

    (b) "Plant" means any marijuana plant in any stage of growth.

    (c) "Qualifying patient" means a person as defined in RCW 69.51A.010.

    (d) "Useable marijuana" means the dried leaves and flowers of the Cannabis plant family Moraceae. Useable marijuana excludes stems, stalks, seeds and roots.

    (3) Presumptive sixty-day supply.

    (a) A qualifying patient and a designated provider may possess a total of no more than twenty-four ounces of useable marijuana, and no more than fifteen plants.

    (b) Amounts listed in (a) of this subsection are total amounts of marijuana between both a qualifying patient and a designated provider.

    (c) The presumption in this section may be overcome with evidence of a qualifying patient's necessary medical use.

    I think he's full of shit at this point. There is a bill in the legislature that could change things though if it were to go through. That might be what he's talking about but today I don't think you need anything like that

    Yeah that sounds like total bullshit! I am a provider for one person and I have my card so I know I am allowed 30 plants. I would tread carefully when you try to interprit the law. I would just stick to the 15 limit, because the courts/cops don't give a shit what you thought the law meant.

    I've read the bill. There are provisions for personal grows, collective grows of up to 25 members, commercial grows and dispensaries. We'll see what gets passed but this is fairly complete. Doing business above the collective level is going to be a nightmare. Just like running a restraunt. The license fee you mentioned is total BS. currently that sort of license is simply not allowed by law and the new bill states the the heads of the dept of agriculture and the health dept will set licensing fees to reflect enforcement costs. No fee amount has yet been set.
