Marijuana application details released tomorrow
A week ago, Washington began accepting applications to; grow, process and sell marijuana under its new legal pot law — and hundreds of people applied.
The Department of Revenue said that by late last week, they had received over 800 completed applications, and more were coming in. Many other people applied in person. The state is accepting the applications for the next month.
Applicants must undergo background checks, be residents of Washington, and have their business areas inspected by the state. They also have to pay a non-refundable $250 fee.
The state says it will cap the number of retail stores at 334 statewide, with 6 in Grays Harbor and 2 in Pacific County.
Under the new regulations, 1 location will be allowed within Aberdeen, 1 in Hoquiam, 1 in Ocean Shores, and 3 other “At Large” within the county.
We will find out on Tuesday how many applications were submitted from Grays Harbor and Pacific County.
