Washington Governor Jay Inslee signed a bill authored by 17th District Rep. Kevin Waters that will prohibit the sale of products combining alcohol and tetrahydrocannabinol in Washington. House Bill 1772 is Waters’ second bill from the 2023 session to receive the governor’s signature. The bill makes it illegal in Washington to manufacture, import, offer, or sell a consumable product that contains cannabis or any form of THC in combination with beer, wine, spirits, or any other type of liquor in the same product. Waters said mixing alcohol and THC is dangerous. They are both depressant drugs, and Waters noted the Food and Drug Administration warns that alcohol may worsen sedation and drowsiness when combined with THC. The bill takes effect 90 days after adjournment of the 2023 legislative session, which ended on April 23.
