SEATTLE (Cannabist) — Washington state is warning dozens of people who applied to run legal marijuana shops that their chance of getting a license is in jeopardy.
The Liquor Control Board on Wednesday began sending letters to 56 businesses around the state, giving them 60 days to schedule an interview with a licensing inspector.
The board says most of those businesses scored lucky numbers in lotteries conducted in April — putting them in a good position to win a coveted marijuana retail license — but they haven’t moved forward with their applications since then.
Some of the applicants might never have intended to get into the retail pot business, while others failed to find a viable location or financing for their store, said Becky Smith, the board’s marijuana licensing manager.
