Island address awarded bid for marijuana sales

Despite the city's well publicized campaign informing entrepreneur and business venturists that zoning would not allow for a marijuana storefront on the Island, five applicants submitted plans for approval, listing a Mercer Island address.

Those include: Hazy Days of 2856 80th Ave. S.E., Organic Sensimillia Company of 7785 Sunset Highway, Unit 338, Stanky Danky of 2856 80th Ave. S.E. Tom's Stuff of 7513 S.E. 27th St., Suite A and Twisted Sacks of 2856 80th Ave. S.E.

Tom's Stuff was ultimately awarded the one lottery bid for the Island. Lottery winners were announced early last month but Brian Smith, a spokesperson for the Washington State Liquor Control, said no lottery was needed for the Island. Other applicants were disqualified because they didn't meet criteria.

The city said it knew nothing of the applicant with a Mercer Island address. Thomas Green, listed as the owner and manager of Tom's Stuff, declined to comment. The address listed is an office condo at the North-end of the Island. According to listing information as of last week, the sale of the property was pending.
