WASHINGTON:  Stings caught three of 10 licensed marijuana stores in Pierce County and two of eight in Thurston County selling to minors, state regulators say.

The state Liquor Control Board said it found a higher rate of compliance statewide: 88 percent, with 18 of 157 stores open at the time selling weed to customers younger than 21 and a single two-time offender, Purple Haze in Snohomish County.

The agency soon to be renamed the Liquor and Cannabis Board made its first round of checks for sales to minors in May and June, sending 18- to 20-year-olds into shops to buy pot.
