WASHINGTON: The selection of recreational marijuana in Southwest Washington grows wider this weekend with the opening of Vancouver’s sixth pot shop, GreenHead Cannabis.
GreenHead opens its doors for the first time at 10 a.m. today along a busy stretch of St Johns Boulevard in the Rose Village neighborhood, just north of Clark College. After several months spent extensively remodeling the 78-year-old building at 2815 St. Johns Blvd. that now houses the store, GreenHead is unlike any other pot shop in the city.
Inside the bones of what used to be a rundown gas station, GreenHead has a modern industrial feel with sleek gray walls, dark floors and exposed brick and wood. High on the wall next to the front counter are two ducks shot by one of the owners, and just around the corner you’ll find a fake fireplace beneath a mantel lined with antique pharmacy equipment.
The design is both an homage the owners’ history and a celebration of the end of a long-standing statewide prohibition on marijuana, said Amy Graeff, GreenHead’s managing director. Graeff and her family own the business.
