Who Can Buy Weed?
Any legal adult can buy and consume weed, edibles, and other legal marijuana products in Washington state.

Unlike some states with legal marijuana, both locals and out-of-state visitors can buy up to an ounce of weed in Arlington WA at a time.
Where Can Weed Be Smoked?
There is a huge distinction between a state’s having legalized the possession and consumption of marijuana and it being acceptable to just smoke up anywhere. As with other controlled substances, weed can only be consumed on private properties. Technically, it can only be smoked on private properties out of public view.
Does the State Track Purchases?
