Seattle Looks Forward to Consumer Bulge

Initiative-502 opened the door to Marijuana sales and Seattle is preparing for the big change expected to hit on December 6th. Though impossible to accurately predict, the city and state expect a very large boom in the new marketplace as consumers rush to take advantage of safe, reliable and now perfectly legal access to new sources of their favorite plant.

It's the seeming Catch-22 of Initiative-502's legalization of marijuana in Washington. Come December 6th, it will be legal to smoke a joint -- provided you are safely inside and not at a magic show. But with no state-authorized stores in place for the foreseeable future, where will the good citizens of Seattle get their weed? Some of the people behind the small wave of Capitol Hill marijuana dispensaries that came -- and went -- over the last two years believe they have the answer.
