Where can I consume cannabis?
Washington State law protects private marijuana use, so you can consume openly in a residence as long as the property owner allows it. Marijuana cannot be consumed in public view, such as on streets and sidewalks, or in public parks. In addition, the state’s Smoking in Public Places Law (RCW 70.160) prohibits smoking of any kind in public places and places of employment.
Hotels: As with tobacco, smoking marijuana in any indoor location is subject to the restrictions in the Washington Smoking in Public Places law. The law prohibits smoking in a public place or place of employment, and within 25 feet of entrances, exits, windows that open, and ventilation intakes that serve an enclosed area. If the establishment permits it and you are either vaporizing or staying in a room in which smoking is allowed, it is legal to consume marijuana in a private hotel room. More information is available here. You may not consume cannabis on the premises of Seattle Cannabis Company.
