After many months of toil, the Sodo pot growers we’ve been following, AuricAG, finally brought their product to market. Their West Seattle Kush went flying off the shelves last week at Cannabis City. They sold 259 one-gram packages in four hours. AuricAG won’t make a huge dent in supply as far as Seattle goes, but as more growers get their operations up to speed, the state expects supply to improve and prices to drop.

Before Damien Tillman walked into Cannabis City to buy marijuana, he ripped off some of the police tape that hung from the door’s frame and asked a fellow pot buyer for a marker.
“A piece of history right here, brother,” he said. “So excited.” Tillman later asked Cannabis City owner James Lathrop to sign the ceremonial caution tape that the store had put up as a representation of prohibition past.
