Former appraiser gets first pot license in WA

Excerpt:
His company’s name celebrates being too stoned to get off the couch, and he hopes to bring an ultra-potent “super joint” to market.

Meet Sean Green, chief executive of Kouchlock Productions and the proud owner of Washington state’s first legal-marijuana business license.

Green said he got involved in the industry after his decade-long career as an independent real-estate appraiser dried up. He took $10,000 and started Pacific Northwest Medical in Shoreline in 2011, later expanding to Spokane.

He plans to begin by growing 1,200 square feet of starter plants to provide to other growers as they become licensed. He expects to expand to growing marijuana buds for retail, with 30 to 50 employees. For now, he said he will also continue running his medical operations, though the Legislature is considering whether to bring medical marijuana into the same system as recreational pot.

My comment: I love the creative diversification!! Yes, I do have a California medical marijuana card…

  1. Good to see that someone was thinking outside the box. The appraiser washout numbers (nearly 50%) listed a few posts below confirm that appraisers are FINALLY starting to take a hint and leave the profession. We hauled our office to the dump in 2009 and have no regrets whatsoever.

    If you’re still hanging in there appraisers you may want to consider asking yourselves if it’s time to stop living off of your spouse or your credit cards. Run Don’t Walk to the nearest appraisal career exit.
