SEATTLE — The first recreational marijuana sold legally in Seattle is headed to the city’s Museum of History and Industry.
The woman who waited all night to be first in line at the Cannabis City store, 65-year-old Deb Greene, plans to donate her pot on Tuesday to the Seattle museum on South Lake Union.
Cannabis City says it also will donate items from its opening day. Legal pot sales began in Washington on July 8.
Washington and Colorado stunned much of the world by voting in November 2012 to legalize recreational marijuana for adults over 21, and to create state-licensed systems for growing, selling and taxing the pot. Sales began in Colorado on Jan. 1.
Washington state law allows the sale of up to an ounce (28 grams) of dried marijuana, 16 ounces (453 grams) of pot-infused solids, 72 ounces (2,040 grams) of pot-infused liquids or 7 grams of concentrated marijuana, like hashish, to adults over 21.
