Washington State Looks to Ban Marijuana Smoking in Vehicles

That’s right, there is no explicit language in the Washington State marijuana law saying that you can’t smoke marijuana in a car.

The Washington Traffic Safety Commission wants state lawmakers to fix that oversight when they reconvene in January. The commission plans to ask the Legislature to create a clear rule stating that neither drivers nor their passengers can smoke or have open packages of marijuana inside a vehicle, Darrin Grondel, director of the Washington Traffic Safety Commission told the The News Tribune.

Grondel said the goal is to mirror the state’s open container law, which says drivers can’t have open, partially consumed or unsealed containers of alcohol inside the passenger cabin of a car. An opened and recorked bottle of wine, for instance, should go in the trunk or a locked vehicle compartment, according to state law. In other words: Keep your weed in the trunk while driving.
