Recreational MMJ In Seattle

Yesterday marked the day that recreational marijuana sales are made legal in the state of Washington.  Earlier this week, 24 MMJ retailers were given permission to distribute recreational weed however not all of them were ready to open for business.  The only medical marijuana shop to offer recreational weed as of yesterday is Cannabis City is in Sodo.

Outside of the store was packed with over 300 customers and news reporters by noon.  By that time, the crowd's mood was impatient - people had been waiting since 8am!  Owner of Cannabis City, James Lathorp, cut the ribbon exclaiming, "I declare this war over!  Free the weed," welcoming all patrons inside to purchase marijuana for medical purposes.
