WALLA WALLA — At least 18 applications from Walla Walla County are among the thousands on the latest list of those seeking licenses for marijuana-related businesses.

Several new local applicants joined the list released by the Washington State Liquor Control Board last week, primarily among those seeking licenses to grow and process pot. Two new applications were added to the number of those seeking to sell marijuana.

There are 12 applications from Walla Walla County for producer and processor licenses, although three of those are under the same name and list the same address. Only one applicant is seeking a producer-only license. Exactly where any of the producer, processor or retail applications will be located is unclear at this time.

The window for applications closed on Dec. 20 and liquor control board employees are working through a backlog of applications. There were 3,746 applications from throughout the state on the latest list.

The largest number, 1,670 applicants, were seeking licenses to grow marijuana and the next-largest number, 1,209, had applied for processing licenses. Many applicants, including those from Walla Walla County, have applied for both producer and processor licenses.

There were 867 applicants listed as seeking licenses to sell marijuana. In Walla Walla County, there were five applications listed.

The number of retail licenses the board will approve for cities and counties is determined by population. Walla Walla County will be allowed four licenses, two in the city of Walla Walla and two at large. If the number of applications exceeds the allotted amount for a city or county, the licenses will be awarded through a lottery system.

The number of licenses for growers and processors will not limited, but the total amount of growing area for the entire state will be capped at 2 million square feet, which is slightly less than 46 acres. Three sizes of growing operations are going to be licensed. Tier 1 growers will be 2,000 square feet or less, Tier 2 growers will be 2,000 to 10,000 square feet and Tier 3 growers will be 10,000 to 30,000 square feet.

The regulatory picture in Walla Walla County remains mixed. Walla Walla County and the city of College Place have adopted moratoriums on drawing up zoning and development regulations for marijuana-related businesses while the cities of Walla Walla and Waitsburg have moved ahead with adopting rules.
