Washington State Busts Unlicensed Marijuana Retailers In Stings

The LCB said it was recommending felony charges

Washington state’s marijuana regulator seized cannabis from two unlicensed businesses after undercover investigations and is recommending prosecutors pursue felony charges in both cases.

Undercover officers of the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) bought illicit cannabis from Caveman Medicine in Tacoma on Aug. 10, the agency said in a news release.

The regulator and local police searched the business, seizing roughly 50 pounds of marijuana products “including a large quantity of cannabis concentrates and cannabis-infused edible products being offered for sale,” according to the release.

“Many of the cannabis-infused products would have been illegal to sell in the regulated marketplace, including products exceeding THC serving size limits and products that are especially appealing to children. ”

The retailer also had a smoking lounge that was “an illegal cannabis club,” the LCB said.

The investigation “began in response to a public complaint of illegal cannabis sales.”

The LCB said it was recommending felony charges to the local prosecutor.
