Washington May Allow Outdoor Marijuana Grows


Karen McCall, chief rules writer for Washington’s Liquor Control Board is recommending that the state allow recreational marijuana to be grown outdoors as well as indoors.


She believes it is important to decrease the program’s carbon footprint.  Allowing outdoor growing, which utilizes the sun rather than electricity, could have a positive impact on the environment.

Outdoor grows require less power because they rely on sunlight rather than artificial light.


McCall says that with the proper security, outdoor grows would work as well as indoor grows.


McCall’s change of opinion came after the state released the proposed guidelines for the program last month. 


The release elicited hundreds of responses from concerned citizens, some of whom believed that restricting outdoor grows would exclude people who could not afford the electricity or indoor growing space from being able to participate in the program.


Those in favor of banning outdoor marijuana grows are concerned about security issues including robbery.


The Liquor Control Board is still working to develop Washington’s regulations for recreational marijuana.
