Island pot growers face legal bog in taking weed to mainland

Island pot growers face legal bog in taking weed to mainland

Scott Durkee is ready to grow some weed.

As soon as the state gives the OK, he and his business partners at Buds of Vashon plan to grow up to 2,000 square feet of plants, which could produce up to 100 pounds of marijuana per year.

But selling it off the island could be risky.

Since no roads connect Vashon to the mainland, marijuana growers will have to move their pot by air or sea — both regulated by federal agencies, which still consider weed illegal.
