Washington’s state cannabis regulator is looking to recruit at least six experts in cannabis science to help advise the regulator on scientific matters.
In a notice published on October 3, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) announced it was looking for members of its first Cannabinoid Science Work Group.
These members may include an expert in: pharmacology, toxicology, organic chemistry, cannabis research, cannabis product testing, and an expert with regulatory affairs experience in nutraceutical, pharmaceuticals, or dietary supplements.
The group will be chaired by LCB’s policy and rules manager Kathy Hoffman, PhD. The LCB intends for the science group to meet at least once “every other month.”
Anyone interested in joining the group can submit an email to email@example.com that details their name, area of expertise, contact information, their cannabis affiliations (should they have any), and their interest in cannabis science and associated regulations.
The deadline for applications is October 24. Successful applicants will be notified by email by mid-November.
