Washington State To Hold First Ever Marijuana Auction
There are auctions for cars. There are auctions for antiques. There are auctions for livestock. Now, in Washington State, there are also auctions for marijuana. As far as I know, there has never been a state sanctioned auction for marijuana. Usually growers just bring it into a store or dispensary and sell it. But, it appears that the State of Washington is taking a new approach, at least in this instance. Per Oregon Live:
Hundreds of pounds of Blue Dream, Blueberry Purple Kush, One Armed Bandit and other popular pot strains will be sold this weekend in Washington’s first state-sanctioned marijuana auction.
Randy Williams, the owner of Fireweed Farms in Prosser, said he hopes to auction off about 500 pounds of pot Saturday from his 450-plant outdoor farm in Eastern Washington. It will be sold in lots ranging from 5 pounds to 100 pounds.
Would you attend a marijuana auction if you had the chance? Obviously, the marijuana has to be sold to store owners since it’s in Washington and the amounts far exceed personal possession limits. I wonder if Oregon will ever take this approach, since outdoor cultivation will be very popular in my home state. I wonder what quality the marijuana will be? If I hear more about the auction results, I’ll make sure to post them.
