Bud Commander. Tumwater’s first and only Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) licensed retail Marijuana store. Founded in 2014 by David and Ruth Moore. David previously owned MooreHempCo LLC of Olympia, Washington, established in 1996. David and Ruth resurrected MooreHempCo LLC in November of 2013, not just to chase the dream but to catch it and become Tumwater’s only I-502 retailer.

On May 1, 2014, just as they were getting ready to celebrate their birthdays, David and Ruth received notification from WSLCB that MooreHempCo LLC WON the Tumwater retail location!

MooreHempCo LLC was granted to be among the first lottery winners to be interviewed with the press via newspaper reporters and King 5 News. What a bright new world of opportunities this created for their business. After their 1st interview with WSLCB, it was determined a tradename change would be in order. Bud Commander was the obvious choice.


We are pleased to have Bud Commander join the Adopt A Highway® program with their new sponsorship of 2 new signs on Route 5 and their dedication to helping their community. Litter can easily build up on the highways, and Bud Commander understands the importance of clean roads for their clients.
