As a coalition of retailers, CORE speaks with a unified voice that advocates for a safe, effective, and healthy retail environment for the sale of cannabis and related products in an economically stable, sustainable, and well-regulated marijuana industry.
CORE represents nearly 25% of the State’s retail revenue. By creating standard industry operating procedures for its members, CORE believes that we can help minimize individual retailers risk. CORE is also working closely with the LCB to clarify and standardize their rules and procedures–to protect retailers from arbitrary penalties.
Any licensed recreational cannabis retailer in Washington State can be a voting member. Any friend of the industry can be a non-voting associate member.
