Leafly report at the end of the week that  HB 2546 may not get past first hurdle. “This bill is not going to be moving out of this committee,” said Rep. Strom Peterson (D-21), chairman of the House Commerce and Gaming Committee, at the end of a preliminary hearing on the bill Thursday morning, “but the conversation certainly is.”

Here’s what Leafly are reporting

A Washington state proposal to cap cannabis concentrates at just 10% THC appears to be stalled in committee, with lawmakers indicating on Thursday that they will prevent the measure from moving forward.

‘This bill is not going to be moving out of this committee.’

House Bill 2546 would outlaw products that currently account for nearly 40% of legal adult-use cannabis sales in the state, including the vast majority of vape cartridges and dabbable extracts.

The bill’s sponsors were motivated by emerging fears that high-THC products could be linked to psychosis in underage users. Lawmakers in Olympia said they were hesitant to approve such a sweeping change to the law but made clear that they’re watching the issue closely.

“This bill is not going to be moving out of this committee,” said Rep. Strom Peterson (D-21), chairman of the House Commerce and Gaming Committee, at the end of a preliminary hearing on the bill Thursday morning, “but the conversation certainly is.”
