TACOMA, Wash. – On Monday at 8:00 a.m., Washington state started accepting applications to grow, process or sell pot after voters passed I-502. Businesses have just one month to apply for a license.

There are three types of licenses: marijuana producer, marijuana processor or marijuana retailer. The state says no business can hold all three licenses and the number of retail licenses will be limited.

These licenses will not be handed out on a first come first serve basis. The Washington Liquor Control Board will review and approved the applications.

There's 3 ways to apply:
- Online through the state's business licensing website - www.bls.dor.wa.gov
- By mail
- In person at any WA Department of Revenue offices

The deadline to apply is December 19th. Any applications after that date will be returned. There is paperwork and a $250 business fee, and $19 application fee.
