Rules could be changed to allow outdoor pot grows

OLYMPIA — The chief rules writer for Washington’s Liquor Control Board says she will recommend that the state allow marijuana to be grown outdoors under its new regulations for recreational marijuana.

Karen McCall told KPLU that an advantage of sun-grown pot is the smaller carbon footprint.

Outdoor grows require less power because they rely on sunlight rather than artificial light. McCall said that with the proper security, outdoor grows would work as well as indoor grows.

Washington voters approved recreational marijuana use last fall, but it remains illegal under federal law. The Liquor Control Board is currently developing regulations for production, sales and distribution.
