    When did voters pass a bill to allow marijuana to be sold in Washington, and when did dispensaries actually start opening?

    Washington Initiative passed on the November 2012 ballet in Washington state. Due to legalization and what many voters called “slow-downs” by local politicians, dispensaries took almost a year and half before being able to open. The first day of sales for recreational marijuana is Washington state was July 8th 2014. “Top Shelf Cannabis” was the first dispensary to open up in Washington.

    Marijuana was legalized in 2012 by the Washington Initiative 502. The law requires state licenses from all sellers, distributors and producers of Marijuana, and permits anyone over 21 to carry one ounce. The state allows licensed growers to cultivate marijuana, but does not permit personal growing in one’s home except for medical use.
    July 8, 2014, Top Shelf Cannabis was the first retail marijuana store to open in Washington state.
