SEATTLE (AP) — Rules for marijuana? Yes, that's what officials in Washington state have come up with now that the drug has been legalized by voters. On Thursday, the state released its first draft of guidelines for its nascent pot business. Among the highlights:

—All pot-related businesses would have to have security systems, 24-hour video surveillance and insurance.

—No sales of marijuana extracts, such as hash, would be allowed — unless the extract is infused into another product.

—Marijuana labeling would also include serving sizes, use-by date, allergy info.

—Any marijuana product sold at a state-licensed stores would carry a label noting that it "may be habit forming," accompanied by a logo of Washington state — with a marijuana-leaf silhouette smack in the middle.
