Seattle's only legal marijuana dispensary is out of pot only three days after opening its doors. The shop, Cannabis City, expects to reopen on July 21, according to a voicemail message for incoming callers.
The shop is one of a few dozen across the state to receive a license to sell marijuana legally in Washington, where a state law legalizing the sell of recreational marijuana went into effect this week.
“We knew it was coming,” said owner James Lathrop. “We didn’t have any guaranteed additional deliveries.”
Voters in Washington and Colorado approved marijuana legalization laws in the fall of 2012. Colorado's law went into effect earlier this year.
