Last week, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board suspended the cigarette, tobacco and vapor product retailer license for Smoking Exodus in Port Orchard.
The board issued an emergency suspension after it found multiple violations of their Washington state license as well as state and federal drug laws. The store’s license will remain suspended for a period of 180 days, during which the WSLCB said it intends to pursue permanent revocation of the license.
Violations include manufacturing vapor products without a license, the presence of drug paraphernalia, which tested positive for methanmphetamine, having alcohol on the premises and living on the premises.
This is the first emergency suspension the WSLCB has issued in 2020.
