Kent adults of legal age (21 or older) can have up to 1 ounce of marijuana flower and 7 grams of cannabis in concentrated form
Possession of between 1 ounce and 40 grams is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 3 months imprisonment and a $1,000 fine
No individual under 21 may possess, sell, or distribute cannabis, cannabis-infused products, or cannabis concentrates, regardless of THC concentration. This does not include a qualifying patient with a valid authorization
The home cultivation of cannabis is illegal
Driving while impaired by cannabis use is illegal. Per Washington law, five nanograms of active tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) per milliliter of blood is the cap for driving
Consumers can have cannabis in their vehicles, but it must be in sealed containers or trunks. It is unlawful to transport any open container or package of marijuana or marijuana-infused products
Cannabis use is illegal in public places and on federal lands
It is unlawful to gift or share cannabis
Initiative 692 (I-692), also known as the Medical Use of Marijuana Act, legalized the medical use of marijuana in Kent. I-692 allows patients with terminal illnesses, persistent pain, and other specific conditions to purchase and use medical marijuana. I-692 permits Kent residents of all ages to access marijuana as long as they have qualifying conditions. However, individuals under 18 can only access medicinal cannabis by designating adult caregivers to assist them in purchasing and administering medical cannabis products.
Per I-692, besides having a qualifying condition, Kent patients must also complete registrations with the Washington Department of Health medical cannabis database before legally purchasing medical cannabis. Purchases are only legal when made at approved medical marijuana dispensaries licensed by the state. Although there are no medical marijuana dispensaries in Kent, residents can buy medical cannabis from other Washington jurisdictions where dispensaries are legally established. While consumption is not permitted on the premises of the dispensaries or in public, cannabis buyers may transport medical cannabis purchases in their original packaging in the trunk of their car across Washington cities. Note that it is illegal to ship medical cannabis across state lines. Hence, you cannot purchase marijuana in another state and ship it across borders into Washington.
Medical marijuana patients with valid medical cannabis registrations can possess up to 3 ounces of flower and 21 grams of cannabis concentrates or extracts per time. Patients who have opted to obtain Washington medicinal marijuana cards are permitted to cultivate up to four cannabis plants at home. Patients who have gotten specific authorization from their attending physicians may cultivate up to 15 marijuana plants and have up to 8 ounces of cannabis flower in dry form. Qualifying Kent patients registered in the Washington medical cannabis database are allowed to join a cooperative to grow their own plants.
If you want to get a medical marijuana card in Kent, you must submit an application to the Washington State Department of Health. However, you must consult with a Washington-licensed healthcare professional before applying. During the consultation, the healthcare provider will determine if your illness qualifies for medical marijuana use. The Washington medical marijuana program allows advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs), medical doctors, naturopathic physicians, osteopathic physicians, osteopathic physician assistants, and physician assistants to issue medical marijuana recommendations.
After determining that your condition qualifies for medical marijuana use, the physician will issue you an authorization document. The following conditions are approved under the Washington medical marijuana program for medical marijuana use:
Traumatic brain injury
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Epilepsy or other seizure disorders
Hepatitis C with debilitating nausea or pain
Chronic renal failures requiring hemodialysis
Crohn's disease with debilitating symptom
With the paperwork from your healthcare provider and a valid Washington State identification card, you may visit a medically endorsed cannabis retail store and make an appointment with the on-site medical marijuana consultant to fill out an application for a medical marijuana card. If the consultant accepts your application, your information will be uploaded to the medical marijuana database for the state of Washington. A card will likely cost you between $1 and $10. To find medically endorsed cannabis stores nearby, review the Medically Endorsed Stores List on the website of the WSLCB.
