WASHINGTON: A Tacoma firm has received the first license in Pierce County allowing the processing of recreational marijuana.
The State Liquor Control Board, the regulating body for licenses to grow, process and sell marijuana under Initiative 502, has announced that Commencement Bay Production and Processing, located in the 3100 block of South Pine Street, can begin processing marijuana plants.
Commencement Bay Director Tyler Severy said Thursday his company should be ready to deliver to retailers by mid-August.
The company will market its products under the brand “Rainier Gardens” and production will be limited to eight “strains” of marijuana. The company has hired a master grower from New Mexico, Severy said.
