Second pot grower approved for Bremerton area


Nine Points Growth Industries has company in the West Hills.

The state Liquor Control Board approved a license Wednesday for a recreational marijuana growing and processing company called Secret Gardens of Washington. The business is moving into in a warehouse on Ida Street, near Auto Center Boulevard, just outside city limits.

Owner Bill Delaney said Secret Gardens should be up-and-running in the next few weeks, depending on county permitting. He expects to use about 7,000-square-feet of growing space. The business will also process marijuana extracts.

Delaney, who lives in Everett but plans to move to Kitsap shortly, secured the lease in West Hills at the beginning of the year. He said he hoped to be operating much earlier, but ran into delays in the approval process.

“It’s been a long road since Jan. 1,” he said.

The arrival of Secret Gardens brings the number of approved marijuana producers in Kitsap to three (see map). Nine Point Growth Industries is just down the road on Third Avenue. Green Apple, an indoor/outdoor grow, is located off Clear Creek Road in Silverdale.

The county’s first recreational marijuana retailer, Crockpot, launched last month.


Tracking new marijuana businesses in Kitsap

blog.potIt’s not happening fast, but the state is gradually approving marijuana businesses.

A second Kitsap marijuana grow called Green Apple was given the OK for a Clear Creek Road location this week. You can read about that here.

A dozen licenses had been approved statewide as of Tuesday. The pace of approvals should pick up soon. A lottery will be held next week to help decide who receives retail pot shop licenses.

I’ll be tracking and mapping approved locations in Kitsap as they come in. We’re compiling these blog posts and all our marijuana news on a new Kitsap Sun page devoted to I-502 implementation. It’s worth bookmarking if you’re curious about the local impacts of legal pot.
