This first planting season signals a new phase for Bougainville concept of providing fully built out turnkey facilities to cannabis growers and processors.These facilities remove financial barriers for cannabis cultivators as traditional funding can be limited. In addition, steps are being taken to get a second tenant up and running for the 2019 growing season. We are moving towards our goal of revenue generating self-sufficiency.”
About the Washington I-502 Marijuana Market
In November 2012, the Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) passed Initiative 502 (I-502) pursuant to a vote by the people of the State of Washington. I-502 authorized the WSLCB to regulate and tax recreational marijuana products for persons over twenty-one years of age and thereby created a new industry for growing, processing and selling of Washington State-regulated recreational marijuana products. A recent WSLCB commissioned report by the Rand organization suggests that there are currently up to 650,000 recreational marijuana users in Washington State, worth approximately $1.25 – $1.5 billion USD in annual sales.
