State agency unveils weekly marijuana report website

OLYMPIA -- Almost everything you ever wanted to know about Washington's legal marijuana businesses might be found on a new state website.

The Washington State Liquor Control Board  has developed a new site that keeps track of the number of licensees for legal marijuana production, processing and sales, the amount produced this month or over the last fiscal year, plus sales volumes and tax receipts. Even the number of violations issued for not following state regs.

That's right. Plenty of pot info, with charts and graphs, and even Google maps with those little push-pin icons.

This website comes as the agency gets ready to change its name to reflect its new purview to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board. New name, same acronym.
