SEATTLE (AP) - Legal marijuana sales likely won't begin in Washington state before spring of next year.

The timeline for granting marijuana growing and processing licenses has been delayed. A spokesman for the Liquor Control Board says the agency will issue all licenses Dec. 1. That means growers likely won't be able to get to work until December, and the final product probably won't be ready for a couple of months after that.

Washington joined Colorado last fall in becoming the first states to legalize recreational marijuana for adults over 21, and to allow the sale of taxed pot at state-licensed stores.
