BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Top Shelf Cannabis passed its final inspection and is waiting to get a retail license next Monday, but an I-502 rule may keep it from opening on time on July 8.

John Evich says there is a 24-hour quarantine on pot before growers can deliver it to retailers.

The rules means that if the Liquor Control Board issues licenses at 8:00 AM Monday, they can’t open until the pot is delivered.

 

He says the processors and the Liquor Control Board are working on it and for now they are on standby and excited to see what happens.
