Dealer poaching customers at Cannabis City, Seattle’s only state-licensed pot store

The Associated Press

Police say a man dealing marijuana out of the back of his Buick has been trying to poach customers from Seattle’s only licensed recreational-pot shop.

Staff at Cannabis City called officers on Saturday night after they said the man threatened to “stomp” a worker who confronted him. Employees told the officers they had seen the man several times before, giving out business cards to customers waiting in line to buy legal, taxed cannabis at the store.

The Police Department said on its online blotter Monday that the man left before officers arrived. They didn’t find him or his vehicle.

The state’s voters legalized marijuana possession by adults over 21 in 2012, but it remains illegal to sell it without a state license.
