WASHINGTON: Fasten your seatbelt and put your tray tables in the upright position. The smoking sign is about to be lit.
You’ve got about 48 hours until licensed, public, retail marijuana sales begin for the first time ever in Washington and the second time ever in the United States.
If the opening day experience earlier this year in Colorado is any guide, then buyers can expect long lines and prices higher than they’ve been paying on the street.
First, however, those buyers need to know which stores will open – and that could prove problematic.
The state Liquor Control Board on Monday will announce the approved locations where marijuana and marijuana-infused products can be sold.
