"Pot Superstore" opens In Seattle

Posted: Updated:

Instead of a state-run liquor store, a building in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood now holds "the Whole Foods of weed," according to the man who owns the business inside.

Green Ambrosia opened last Saturday and is the city's biggest medical marijuana dispensary.

The opening comes as Washington's Liquor Control Board and lawmakers decide how to regulate recreational marijuana sales in the wake of Initiative 502, which legalized the use and possession of small amounts of pot.

"This could be the face of what I-502 enabled pot looks like," explained Green Ambrosia owner Dante Jones.

Jones' business has operated since 2011, but only recently opened a storefront. Inside, behind a bamboo wall, is one large glass table loaded with jars of marijuana. There are restrictions on how much medical marijuana a business can have on sale.
