Some Recreational Marijuana Stores In Washington Are Struggling
Being a part of the legal marijuana industry is not always profitable. Thats something I have been saying since Washington and Colorado legalized marijuana, and the rush to cash in on the next great American industry started. I was saying it when the growth of the medical marijuana industry started in Western States. A lot of people think that if you open a store or start a garden or invent a marijuana-related product, you will be rich overnight, automatically. That is far from the truth.
The marijuana industry has no guarantees. We are seeing that play out right now in Wa....

Co-owner Mike Henery says hes aware of the countys ban, but the county has tolerated many legally dubious medical marijuana establishments, so he thought it was worth the risk to go ahead and open.

Despite a ban on pot businesses in Pierce County, Tedd Wetherbee said he plans to open a retail marijuana store called The gallery in Parkland on Friday.
The store will be reminiscent of a SOHO gallery and feature a life-size cardboard cutout of President Bill Clinton and a 7 tall African bird sculpture, according to a press release from Wetherbee and business partner Michael Henery.
Wetherbee believes the county wont target him for enforcement because it has allowed medical-marijuana businesses to conduct business in the county.
We think more than likely we will get to ....

Uncle Ikes Pot Shop, Seattles second marijuana store, faces one less legal obstacle.
Bowing out of a long legal fight, Mount Calvary Christian Center filed a motion Tuesday to withdraw from a lawsuit it filed.

It says the city and state did not perform due diligence in allowing Uncle Ikes to open.
