First License to Produce, Process Recreational Marijuana Issued in Washington State

Washington state issued its first license to produce and process recreational marijuana this week. The grower who received the license says he expects to have marijuana plants ready to harvest within two months, Reuters reports.

The Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) issued the license to Sean Green, who will operate his business under the trade name Kouchlock Productions, the board said in a statement. Green already grows and sells medical marijuana. He has 5,000 square feet of cultivation space, but the new license will allow him to have 21,000 square feet to cultivate recreational-use marijuana.
