State regulators suspend Green2Go’s marijuana license, closing store for 5 days
FINLEY, Wash. — Green2Go’s license to sell marijuana was suspended for five days due to a violation at the Finley store, according to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board.
The business closed on Thursday Jan. 24 and won’t reopen until Tuesday Jan. 29 at 10 a.m.
A Dec. 12 inspection of the marijuana retailer found that the store violated the state’s traceability standards, which require pot businesses to track their product from seed to sale, said Brian Smith, a spokesperson for Liquor and Cannabis Board.
Green2Go was faced with a $2,500 penalty or a five-day suspension of its license, and it had 20 days to decide which penalty to pay. Since the company did not respond within the given timeframe, the penalty automatically defaulted to a five-day suspension, said Smith.
This is the store’s first violation since it opened in Finley
