During the COVID-19 pandemic, Washington state decided dispensaries should be treated similarly to pharmacies, recognizing patients still need access to medicinal cannabis. Both medical and recreational sales were kept open, so consumers can access legal cannabis without risking the illicit market. Seattle dispensaries have also adopted safety measures such as curbside pickup, delivery, and social distancing within stores to keep customers and retail workers safe. Despite short-term uncertainty, the long-term projections for the cannabis industry, especially in Washington, remain strong.
