State picks marijuana consultant

Washington state has selected one consulting firm to advise the Liquor Control Board on all four parts of its new marijuana law, according to Medical Marijuana Business Daily.

According to the trade publication, Botec Analysis Corp., based in Massachusetts, has received the initial go-ahead to provide consulting services in each of the four major areas identified by the state: product and industry knowledge, product quality standards and testing, product usage and consumption validation, and product regulation. The state considered hiring different consultants to advise it on the various areas.

State officials would not confirm the selection, which will be official pending final approval and is expected to be announced Tuesday.
