Liquor Control Board Issues First Recreational Marijuana Licenses
Several producer and processor applicants at or near final stages of licensing process
OLYMPIA – The Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) today issued the state’s first licenses to produce and process recreational marijuana during a Board meeting at its headquarters in Olympia. The licenses were issued to Spokane’s Sean Green who will operate his business under the trade name Kouchlock Productions.
“This is a historic day,” said Board Chair Sharon Foster. “The hard work and preparation this agency has done has laid the foundation to make this pioneering endeavor a success.”
Kouchlock Productions is licensed to produce and process recreational marijuana. It holds a restricted tier-three license to produce marijuana initially up to a maximum of 21,000 square feet. Kouchlock Productions is one of over 2,800 producer license applications that the WSLCB is currently processing. Licenses will be continuously issued as they are ready.
