A select group of minors will go into Washington’s new legal pot stores on a covert mission: to try and buy weed for the state.

To curtail youth access to legal marijuana, state officials want to use minors in pot-buying stings next year when stores are expected to open.

Charged with implementing the new law that allows adults to possess an ounce of pot, the state Liquor Control Board already uses minors in “controlled buys” of alcohol at retail stores.

Answer: A minor can work trimming medical marijuana if he or she has a proper permit for work but he or she cannot buy the marijuana.
