No retail, but the Twin Harbors has more marijuana licenses active
Marijuana is now available for sale through retail stores across the state; and now more local licenses are being added to grow the product.
As of their latest update, the Washington State Liquor Control Board announced that 2 marijuana producer/processers now have active licenses in Grays Harbor. Typhoon Yolanda in Copalis Crossing and Growth Industries in Porter can now both grow and package legally for the recreational market.
There are 2 producers with active licenses in Pacific County, with Green Labs in South Bend and BMF Washington at the Port of Willapa Harbor industrial park in Raymond.
There are no active retail licenses for either Grays Harbor or Pacific County out of over 50 applications.
24 retail stores had their licenses approved to begin selling yesterday.
The first purchase at Top Shelf Cannabis in Bellingham was two grams of pot for $26.50.
Before the store opened at 8 a.m., several dozen people were lined up outside.
An Associated Press survey of the 24 licensees showed only about six planned to open Tuesday. Others said it could be a month or more before they could acquire marijuana to sell.
