SEATTLE (AP) — Washington state’s first legal marijuana license is going to a guy named Green.

The Associated Press has learned that Spokane grower Sean Green, the chief executive of a company called Kouchlock Productions, is due to be issued a producer-processor license at the state Liquor Control Board meeting in Olympia on Wednesday morning.

Philip Dawdy, a longtime marijuana activist who is handling media calls for Green, confirmed the news Tuesday and said Green won’t be giving interviews until after the license is issued. The license will initially allow him to grow 21,000 square feet of cannabis.

Green has run medical marijuana dispensaries in Shoreline and Spokane for the past few years. Dawdy says he was one of the first dispensary operators in the state to pay all applicable state taxes, and that he always plays by the rules.
