PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) — A Port Orchard pot shop is facing its second license suspension for selling to a minor.

The Kitsap Sun reports that an employee of Greenway Marijuana sold pre-rolled marijuana joints to an 18-year-old woman who was helping conduct a compliance check for the state Liquor and Cannabis Board. The legal age for marijuana in Washington is 21.

The newspaper obtained information about the sting through a public records request. The documents showed that the worker checked the woman’s ID, which listed a birth date in 2000, and then completed the sale anyway.

Greenway’s retailer license will be suspended for 15 days, beginning Oct. 11. The store will also pay a $2,500 penalty for selling to a minor and $600 for allowing a minor in a restricted area. The store was also suspended for 10 days in 2016.

Greenway owner Michael Lyman called the incident “an honest mistake made by a good person.”
