WASHINGTON: This will not be a new line of work for Jeff Gilmore.
“There hasn’t been a day I haven’t gotten up at 6 a.m. and started selling pot in the last 45 years,” Gilmore said.
What is new is state government’s stamp of approval. The Liquor Control Board handed a marijuana producer-processor license May 28 to business partners Gilmore, David Brown and Mary McKnew, a former member of the liquor board.
And with that, Thurston County has its first licensed marijuana grower.
The partners are allowed to use up to 7,000 square feet on property next to Gilmore’s home near Tenino to grow the plants.
