A medical marijuana dispensary in Western Washington state is in hot water over selling one of their products to a minor. The Hashford Compassion Club in Tacoma was caught up in a sting operation, but not your typical sting involving a cannabis club. The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department received a complaint that the establishment had sold alcohol to a minor. They organized a covert buy with a minor informant who was able to purchase three bottles of a drink that was advertised as “Cannabis Enriched Honey Beer”.
The store had been carrying the liquid drink that was labeled “Cannabis Enriched” that they sold to the minor informant, but the store does not have a license to sell beer. The case was handed over the the Washington state liquor control board. Board officials say they will be pursuing the liquor sales violation. They seized several cases of the beer from their store in a Tacoma strip mall on Friday. No one has been charged as of yet in the case, but the cannabis enriched alcohol was sent as evidence to the state prosecutor.
