Washington State - A Port Orchard business has received the first state license for a retail marijuana shop on the Kitsap Peninsula. The state Liquor Control Board issued a license Tuesday for The Crockpot store at 1703 SE Sedgwick Road. Owner Randy Jones said he hopes to receive his city business license this week, although he probably won't procure enough cannabis to open the shop until August.

The licensed retailers who have opened this month in Washington have had a challenge finding steady marijuana supplies, because the relatively few licensed producers have not been able to keep with demand after the first stores opened. There are two licensed marijuana growers active in Kitsap – one in Bremerton's West Hills and one off Clear Creek Road in Silverdale.

Crockpot placed second in a lottery held this spring to determine which retail applicants would be first in line for the 10 licenses allotted for Kitsap County. Another recreational marijuana store plans to open Friday west of Hood Canal on the Olympic Peninsula. Entrepreneur Greg Brotherton received his license last week to operate his tiny Sea Change Cannabis store on U.S. Highway 101 about 14 miles east of Sequim in Jefferson County.
