Recreational marijuana grow approved in NK

Recreational marijuana businesses are banned in Poulsbo, but one will soon open outside city limits.

The state Liquor Control Board issued a license Friday for marijuana producer and processor Ethos Extracts, located at 22277 Stottlemeyer Road, near Bond Road.

Ethos Extracts is the first recreational pot business approved in North Kitsap. The state approved a grow on Bainbridge Island earlier this month.

The addition of Ethos Extracts bring’s the county of legalized marijuana businesses in Kitsap to 10, including four retailers and six producers.

There are still no retail shops north of Bremerton.

State approves Bainbridge pot grow

A Bainbridge Island marijuana producer and processor got the green light Tuesday from the state Liquor Control Board.

The planned business, called Way Kool, is the first recreational marijuana operation approved for the island. It will be located in a small industrial park at 8040 Day Road, just west of Highway 305.

This was not the same applicant who’d applied to place a marijuana retail outlet near Manzanita Park, sparking debate over whether the proposed business would violate a moratorium on opening pot businesses within 1,000 feet of public gathering places.

Way Kool is planned for a property outside just outside the 1,000 foot buffer. The city did not object to Way Kool’s application to the Liquor Control Board, according to a city spokeswoman. Way Kool’s business license application is under review.

Another week, another 30 pot shop applications processed for Kitsap.

The state Liquor Control Board is still working its way through a backlog of recreational marijuana business applications filed before the Dec. 20 deadline.

There are 92 applications listed for retail shops in Kitsap, up from 64 last week.

The applications will be vetted at the state and local level. Qualified applications will be entered into a lottery to determine which receive the limited number of license endorsements allowed.

The state will approve 10 retail outlets in Kitsap, including two in Bremerton and one on Bainbridge Island.

There are also 64 proposed growing operations and 47 processing businesses in Kitsap. Those licenses aren’t capped.

Here’s the updated list of retail applications (map embedded above): Continue reading
