On Wednesday in Olympia, the Washington State Liquor Control Board issued the very first marijuana producer license in the state. It was awarded to a Spokane company, Kouchlock Productions. The license is is for a 21,000 square feet of growing space.

Sources tell KHQ's Dylan Wohlenhaus that Kouchlock Productions of Spokane will be the first licensed and certified marijuana grower in the state of Washington. There are nearly 2800 marijuana producer applicants in the state. On Wednesday at 10:00am the Washington State Liquor Control Board will grant the license to the company at its regularly scheduled board meeting in Olympia.

Kouchlock Productions is owned and operated by Sean Green. Green currently owns Pacific Northwest Medical, a medical marijuana dispensary which has one location in North Spokane and another in Seattle. Earlier this year, a medical marijuana shop opened in North Spokane under the name Kouchlock Productions. The name is leased from Green. The shop hopes to transition in to retail sales early this summer. In line with Washington state law, the company cannot produce and sell marijuana at the same location. A retail applicant also cannot apply for a producer license.

The Washington State Liquor Control Board says it still anticipates the first retail shop to open in June. The board also says producers can begin to grow and transfer plants as soon as licenses are granted. It's expected to take producers and processors up to 4 months from initial growth before their marijuana product can be sold in stores.
