Vancouver, Washington – One of the first marijuana growers to receive a license from Washington State is getting ready for next week’s opening of retail marijuana shops. Brian Stroh from Cannaman Farms predicts July will be a rugged month because of scarce supplies.
He says the state has just one facility located in Yakima to test the pot and the testing takes five days. He says the state will send a courier to pick up samples of his crop tomorrow or Wednesday.
He also says communication with the state has been a challenge in the last few weeks. Stroh learned about the opening date for the retail stores from news media reports, not from the liquor control board.
He expects to sell his pot for $4,000 a pound. But he expects the price to drop in six months as more marijuana is harvested.
