Washington Retailers Get Pot Licenses

Hosted by

In January, recreational marijuana shops opened all over Colorado, a state with a history of medical marijuana. Today, when Washington state issued its first licenses for such outlets, it was starting from scratch. 24 licenses to sell recreational marijuana were issued, the first of 334 to be granted statewide. Retail outlets won’t be opening up until tomorrow, but there’s already a predicted shortage of product.
