Port Orchard getting third pot shop

Port Orchard’s Bethel corridor is fast becoming Kitsap’s marijuana retail hub.

The Liquor Control Board approved recreational pot shop Greenway for 4851 Geiger Road SE, just west of the intersection of Bethel Road and Sedgwick Road.

It joins Crockpot and 420 Spot Shop in the Bethel corridor, and HWY 420 in Bremerton.

Greenway placed seventh in a lottery held by the state this spring to determine which retail applicants would be first in line for licenses.

In other I-502 news, a marijuana testing laboratory, the first in West Sound, was approved for Poulsbo’s Viking Avenue earlier this year.

Testing labs are critical because all recreational marijuana must be analyzed for THC content and other properties before it hits store shelves. Only 13 labs have been approved statewide.
