OLYMPIA, Wash. - Lawmakers in Olympia are considering a bill that tells retailers what to do with marijuana that is dropped or left in the store.
Introduced by Democratic Rep. Christopher Hurst and Republican Rep. Terry Nealey, the bill would set out steps for the "proper disposal of legal amounts of marijuana inadvertently left at retail stores holding a pharmacy license."
Nealey says the bill was prompted by recent incidents where pot was found at Walmart stores after it was dropped. He says there is some concern that having marijuana on the premises could affect the licensing of the pharmacies at such stores.
The bill states if less than an ounce of pot is found at a store with a pharmacy, the store must notify law enforcement and the marijuana must be properly disposed of.
Nealey says the stores should follow the same steps if the pot is left there on purpose, or if more than an ounce is left.
