The Liquor Control Board is on pot patrol making sure recreational marijuana license holders in Washington are following the rules.
Since becoming legal, 67 penalties have been issued by the LCB from May to mid-October
That's roughly 10 percent of license holders. The LCB saying with this new industry it's main focus is on education and making sure everyone knows what's required of them.
At Yield Farms in the Spokane Valley buds are being trimmed and tracked and strains like NYC Diesel will end up in retail stores soon. The LCB has been busy as well.
"Our first day when we got our inspection they came in and said, 'Just follow the rules and everything will be fine.' So we are trying to do that," said Johanna Tuttle with Yield Farms in the Spokane Valley.
Tuttle says the I-502 rollout has been fairly smooth with not an exorbitant number of regulations.
"All in all I think it's very reasonable," said Tuttle.
But that doesn't mean there won't be mistakes. Yield Farms did receive a verbal warning from the LCB in September for failure to report monthly tax reports or payments.
