Who’s growing legal, recreational pot in your town or neighborhood? This map shows all licensed producers and processors in Washington.
At least initially, the state has capped marijuana production at two million square feet for the entire state. That means the size of marijuana grow operations are limited. Producers (growers) fit into three tiers of production.
- Tier 1 is allowed up to 1,400 square feet of growing space
- Tier 2 is allowed between 1,400 and 7,000 square feet of growing space
- Tier 3 is allowed up to 21,000 square feet of growing space
The state’s marijuana law requires a separate license for processing marijuana, which could involve packaging pot, making it into hash oil or creating edibles. Producers can also be processors.
Under state law, when producers sell marijuana to processors they must pay a 25 percent excise tax. If you’re both a producer and processor, you don’t have to pay that tax, so there’s a financial benefit to having both licenses.
