Liquor control board issues warning about marijuana scam

The Liquor Control Board (LCB) has issued an advisory for marijuana license applicants. Applicants have been receiving scam solicitations from a company about an impending universal February deadline for applicants to “get set up” and that the LCB will “no longer wait for your plan to come together.” These claims are not true.

The LCB writes, “While some individual applicants may be facing deadlines in February those are not universal to every applicant. Any changes to the status of an individual application will be conveyed to the applicant by their investigator and universal changes regarding the implementation of I-502 will be communicated via official WSLCB channels including this Listserv. Applicants should be skeptical about any mass communications claiming to have inside information and treat them as hearsay or rumor until they speak with their WSLCB representative.”
