On Tuesday, July 8, Washington’s first recreational marijuana stores will open. Barring some 11th-hour catastrophe, 10 pounds of marijuana will line the shelves of Cannabis City in Sodo, which is likely to be the first recreational shop to open in Seattle. Owner James Lathrop expects to sell all 10 pounds of pot on Tuesday at $15 to $20 per gram. 

Until last week, Lathrop and his business manager had been working as many as 16 hours a day to prepare the business for its first customers. He said Cannabis City passed its two-hour state inspection last week.
