Bremerton’s Nine Point Growth Industries and the Downtown Cannabis Company in the Pierce County town of Pacific have both received licenses to grow and process marijuana for sale at pot shops due to open later this year. They join Spokane’s Kouchlock Productions, which was issued the first license on Wednesday.
Washington’s voters approved the state-licensed sale of highly taxed weed to adults older than 21 when they approved Initiative 502 in 2012.
The Kitsap Sun reports that Nine Point Growth plans to begin growing next week. But Pacific has adopted a six-month ban on marijuana operations within city limits, and it’s not clear when Downtown Cannabis might begin production.
The state Liquor Control Board is reviewing more than 2,700 applications from people who hope to be licensed to grow marijuana for the recreational industry.
