Governor signs law allowing marjuana stores to give out lock boxes

State law places strict limits on what marijuana stores can sell or give out. Soon, that list will see an increase.
Recently, Governor Jay Inslee signed a bill allowing pot stores to give out small safes. The purpose of the bill is to stop children and animals from accidentally eating the marijuana.
House Bill 1250’s sponsor Rep. Dan Griffey, R-Allyn, said Mason County health officials have been pushing for the new law because they have a “large quantity” of small safes they’re planning to supply to the county’s marijuana shops.
The freebies are sparked by reports of children eating marijuana-infused foods when people don’t keep them secure, Griffey said. While perhaps not as serious as prescription drugs, he said, it can still result in emergency room trips.
The new law also allows shops to sell safes as long as they're not making a profit.
