Plan by state cannabis board employee to lease land near Deer Park for marijuana facility withdrawn

A businessman has formally withdrawn his application to build a marijuana growing and processing facility in Deer Park, prompting cheers from neighbors who had opposed the project.

The state Liquor and Cannabis Board previously suspended a separate application process after it was revealed that the owner of the Deer Park property is also an employee of the agency – an apparent conflict of interest prohibited under state law.

Grant Bulski, a marijuana licensing specialist, was leasing the 25-acre parcel to Jeff Montgomery, a former Hollywood producer who broke into Washington’s pot industry several years ago. He owns a marijuana company called Farmers Distributors.
