OLYMPIA, Wash. (March 19, 2013)—Washington State has ended its search for a marijuana consultant to advise officials on all things pot as they develop rules for the state's new industry in legal, heavily taxed marijuana.
The Washington Liquor Control Board introduced Massachusetts-based BOTEC Analysis Corp. as the presumptive winner of the consultant contract during a news conference Tuesday.
The team, led by a University of California, Los Angeles public policy professor, includes the former chief executive of the company that is the sole licensed supplier of medical marijuana in the Netherlands.
It also includes researchers with the RAND Corp. who will help figure out how much marijuana state-licensed growers should produce.
