Mark Zugsmith, owner of Pacific Overseas Tree Company, has applied for licenses to produce and process marijuana in White Salmon. Zugsmith has been selling Siddhi Tonics for about a year and a half and currently sells it to medicinal dispensaries in Seattle, but hopes to introduce the product to retail marijuana stores once they are opened. Siddhi Tonic, which includes bhang, a cannabis tonic, can be added to drinks, smoothies, or yogurt.
