The state of Washington legalized medical cannabis in 1998, and then legalized marijuana for recreational purposes at the end of 2016. Washington joins the ranks of Oregon, California, Nevada, Alaska, Colorado, Maine and Massachusetts with its recreational use laws.
Although everyone has access to marijuana now, there are still certain differences between recreational use and therapeutic use. For medical cannabis, the qualifying medical conditions for cannabis in Washington include:

As of July 1, 2016, all non-licensed medical cannabis dispensaries had to close. The Cannabis Protection Act increased the number of retail stores selling marijuana. The law also provides for medical marijuana dispensary licenses if the dispensary meets certain criteria:
At this point, patients can visit retail stores, but they can also grow up to 15 plants of marijuana if they prefer. However, they can only cultivate their own plants if a marijuana doctor in Washington authorizes it. Participation in a patient database is voluntary, but only those who do participate will receive a medical marijuana ID card. Additionally, those who choose to sign up for the database can purchase three ounces of marijuana, versus the one ounce allotted to everyone else.
