Who wants a marijuana license in West Seattle? State’s first applicant list

As the state gets closer to granting its first marijuana-selling licenses, it’s just published its first list of who’s seeking them. Reviewing the list for local applicants, here’s what we found: So far, no West Seattle applicants for a marijuana-retailer license; no West Seattle applicants for a marijuana-processor license, though there’s one in nearby Shorewood (Going Green, 2525 SW 102nd Lane); one West Seattle applicant for a marijuana-producer license, Evergreen Herbal, in the Riverside area at 3601 W. Marginal Way SW, seeking a Tier 3 license – described as “10,000 to 30,000 square feet of plant canopy.” The state says it will update this list weekly during the one-month application period, which ends on December 19th (more info here).

    Wasn’t the only possible retail space for MJ sales in West Seattle basically like a 1/4 block space along the edge of White Center, one little sliver down off West Marginal, and maybe a small section of 35th SW over by Kenyon, maybe?

    Great now the armed robbers have a list of targets to hit 3 months after licenses are issued. Especially knowing that owners and employees can’t protect themselves with fire arms because if they do they will be locked up for violating federal law. here is good white paper on I-502 and why it wont work.
    If your thinking about applying for an I-502 license this is a good read.

    My neighbors should go ahead and apply. With the amount they are constantly smoking that blows over to my house, they could do with a constant supply.

    Maybe the State can just pass a law to override the applicable federal firearms laws and the growers can carry as many guns as they would like. (Not meant as a cut at you or your comment, just addressing the greater irony of “selective enforcement of laws”.)

    @jamesb, what’s stopping them from hiring security to stand outside?

    I welcome this! Let’s get people buying it legally and then we can step back and really assess if this was a good idea.

    Lets use some of the taxes from the sale of cannabis to fund public transportation.

    @james not sure if you understand the retail side of things – the stores will be big and probably have lots of security. Not only that but law enforcement will be protecting these establishments considering they will be the prime beneficiary of the revenue.

    I believe you need to list your name on the application but the actual location of the premises doesn’t have to be decided for some time.

    I do! I do!

    Curious if anyone in Tokeland WA will apply? Almost mandatory one would think

      Could become a tourist attraction if they had a sign …

Sorry, comment time is over.
