Washington State's first marijuana grower is a Spokane native who has been running medical marijuana dispensaries for the last three years, KXLY confirmed Tuesday afternoon.
Sean Green was born and raised in Spokane, and was a real estate appraiser for ten years. For the past three years he's been running two medical marijuana dispensaries in Shoreline and Spokane
Green confirmed to KXLY his company, called Kouchlock Productions, will get the first license to grow marijuana in the state. He'll be allowed to grow cannabis in a 21,000 square foot facility.
He believes his always playing by the state's rules and paying taxes when others don't helped him in the process. He's spoken to KXLY about the legalization of marijuana several times, including a January 8 report about the lack of marijuana in Colorado and what he planned to do if he received a license to grow here in Washington.
