On Monday, the Washington State Liquor Control Board issued the state’s first 24 marijuana retail licenses.

These are the first of 334 licenses that will be issued by the control board.

Sales are expected to begin this week.

Bonney Lake is on the list of allotted licenses, receiving one, but the city was not among the 24 released Monday.

The cities that have received retail licenses were selected with regard to population, geographic dispersion and the applicant’s readiness to be licensed, according to a press release from the Liquor Control Board.

Due to the moratorium in Bonney Lake, it may take a few more months, City Administrator Don Morrison said, for the Planning Commission to determine the appropriate zoning for a marijuana retail store to go.

To his knowledge, Morrison said, “the one licensee has not signed a lease anywhere.”
