Wash. marijuana store shut down for not paying taxes

BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - Kitsap County's first marijuana business has been shut down by regulators who alleged the recreational pot grow operation had repeatedly failed to pay its taxes.

Agents with the state Liquor and Cannabis Board seized about 2,000 plants and clones from Nine Point Growth Industries on Thursday.

The board says it is the first time the state has seized and destroyed all the plants from a licensed producer for the producer's failure to comply with regulations.

The Kitsap Sun reports the company owed $29,000 in taxes.

The company was on the forefront of applicants in the state's fledgling legal marijuana industry, becoming the second in the state to acquire a license.
