Everett Marijuana Retailer Back Open After License Suspension

suspension

Mari J’s is now open again after being closed by the State for a week.

The doors are back open at Mari J’s Highway Pot Shop in Everett’s Eastmont neighborhood after being closed for the past week.

The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board suspended the store’s license from last Wednesday Nov. 4th until this morning, (Nov. 9th).

After a routine inspection of the store’s invoices on September 8th, an agent found the store had sold 11 items under acquisition cost.

All of the items were sold for one cent when their value was between 30 cents and 75 cents.

An explanation letter from Mari J’s attorney was dis-allowed as it had been postmarked a day late.

In other Everett retail marijuana news it looks like Everett’s fifth and final recreational retail marijuana licensee, Globodyne, has found a new spot to open.

The proposed address is in a former gas station in the 3000 block of Everett Avenue. While approval has been given by the State Liquor and Cannabis board there still needs to be some work done before the City of Everett will issue a license.

Globodyne had been set to open at its original location just south of the Holiday Inn on Pine Street when it was discovered the location was within the Everett Station Zone that was not included in the allowable areas for recreational marijuana sales.

The council decided that the future of that area would not lend itself to retail marijuana.

The State is beginning to hold hearings on adding more retail locations for marijuana.

Currently Everett is limited to five recreational pot shops and city law prohibits medical marijuana operations.

It’s part of an effort to close unlicensed medical marijuana stores and bring all marijuana control both recreational and medical under the supervision of the State of Washington.

The Liquor and Cannabis Board is holding hearings around the State this month and the last of those will be on Thursday November 19th from 6:30 – 8:30 PM in the Jackson Conference Center on the campus of Everett Community College.
