1. Who can legally buy cannabis in Washington State?
Any persons over 21 years of age with a valid form of identification can make a cannabis purchase in Washington. Also, since we are a store with a medical endorsement, any persons 18+ with a valid Medical Marijuana form may enter the store. If you are under 18 and have a Medical Marijuana form, we must enter you into the Authorization Database before you enter the store.
2. What are acceptable forms of identification?
Any state issued identification card (driver’s license, ID), any ID issued by a Canadian province or U.S. territory, any U.S. Armed Forces ID, Passport, or government- issued Tribal ID card from Washington state are acceptable forms of identification. Expired identification cannot be used to verify age. The medical marijuana form should be printed on tamper-proof paper and the information on the form must match that on your picture ID.
3. Do I have to be a Washington state resident to buy cannabis?
No. Any person over 21 years of age with a valid ID may enter our store and purchase cannabis. To be a medical marijuana patient, you must be a Washington state resident.
4. How much can I buy?
In Washington, you can legally purchase and carry one ounce (28 grams) of flower, 7 grams of oil, 72 ounces of liquid edible, and 36 ounces (net wt) of solid edible. If you are a patient that has voluntarily been entered into the authorization database, you are allowed to purchase three times the recreational limit; 3 ounces of flower, 21 grams of concentrate, 216 ounces liquid edible, and 48 ounces (net wt) solid edibles.
5. May I consume on Herbal Nation’s premises?
No. Public consumption is against the law; cannabis is to be used responsibly from the comfort of your own home or out of the eye of public.
6. Can marijuana products purchased in Washington be transported outside of Washington?
No. Washington cannabis is to remain inside the state of Washinton.
7. Can I return or exchange items purchased at Herbal Nation?
No. All sales are final; the law strictly prohibits returns, refunds and exchanges once the purchased item has left our store.
8. Can I purchase to resell?
No. The only legal place to buy cannabis is at a store licensed by the state of Washington.
9. What is the difference between a medical marijuana form and an authorization card?
After receiving the medical marijuana authorization form from your healthcare practitioner, you have the option to be entered into the Washington state medical marijuana authorization database. When entered into the database by a certified medical marijuana consultant, you are issued a laminated card to keep on you when you visit a store. The form provides affirmative criminal defense against possession charges (if you possess or grow an amount under the possession limit). The authorization card, which costs $1, gives patients access to a higher transaction limit, a higher possession limit, a higher grow limit, as well as exemption of local state or sales tax.
