WASHINGTON: Green Lady Marijuana is ready to open this weekend as Olympia’s first recreational marijuana retailer.
The only thing missing is the marijuana.
The store was originally slated to open Friday (Aug. 15) at 3044 Pacific Avenue East, Suite B. However, Green Lady’s cannabis suppliers have encountered a few hiccups related to traceability software and product tests, said co-owner Mike Redman. An announcement will be made on Green Lady’s Facebook page and website when supplies finally arrive, possibly as soon as Saturday.
“We’re all waiting patiently,” Redman said Friday while his staff stocked the store’s display cases with glass pipes, bongs and vaporizers.
At first, Green Lady will start off selling higher-end strains until inventory can grow to include edibles and vapor pens, Redman said. Prices will be comparable to other recreational marijuana outlets, he said, noting that Green Lady’s goal is to keep the cost between $15 and $35 per gram. Redman also expects the prices to drop as more product enters the market and growers go through another cycle.
