Signs encourage braking for weed and munchies

Here’s a twofer for rec pot shoppers.

Mari J’s Highway Pot Shop recently opened next to the Buzz Inn Steakhouse. The businesses are at 9504 and 9506 19th Ave. SE in the Eastmont neighborhood of Everett, a hop from I-5 and Costco.

Ralph L. Bowers Jr. sent the photo at right to The Herald of the jocular juxtaposition.

“I was driving home from work and it piqued my funny bone,” said Bowers, 60, a daytime custodian at Seattle Hill Elementary School. “I had to take a picture of it. I pulled over.”

Bowers said he didn’t inhale.

Mari J’s worker Riley Johnson said it is happenstance that the pot shop opened next to the Buzz Inn.

“It’s a pretty good business combination,” Johnson said. “Come get weed at our store then go to them for the munchies.”

The bummer is that the Buzz Inn, known for its great steaks, burgers and all-day breakfast, is temporarily closed for remodeling. But, hey, no problem.

“Burger King is our go-to spot,” Johnson said.
