Seattle pot shop runs out, closes for up to 15 days

SEATTLE — Seattle’s only legal pot shop is out of pot.

Owner James Lathrop says Cannabis City sold its last bag of marijuana at 5 p.m. Thursday, and he doesn’t expect to get any more supply for up to 15 days.

Sales of taxed, legal marijuana to adults over 21 began Tuesday at a handful of stores around Washington state. Short supply has been a common worry, because relatively few growers have been ready to harvest from their bar-coded plants.

Cannabis City saw huge crowds when it opened at noon Tuesday. By the time it closed, it had sold 11 pounds of marijuana. Most of it was sold in thousands of packages of 2 grams apiece.

The going rate at the shop varied, but was about $22 a gram.
