WASHINGTON: Consistent with RCW 34.05.230, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board published a policy statement concerning structure or function claims for marijuana [cannabis] infused products.
This policy statement is intended to define medically compliant cannabis product structure or function claims to the extent possible, and to establish a framework to guide the evaluation of structure or function label claims.
Policy statements are agency-level documents declaring plans or intentions of an agency. Policies are different from procedures, standard operating procedures, or guidance because they apply to the entire organization and are primarily intended to set direction. In contrast, procedures or guidelines typically include specific instructions used to accomplish defined tasks that may be described in a policy.
Notice of WLSCB Policy Statement #PS21-04 was filed with the Washington State Code Reviser on September 14, 2021 as WSR 21-19-062.
