Spokane marijuana businesses offer ‘Green Friday’ deals

Spokane’s newest and most-scrutinized retailers opened their doors with deals for their first Black (or Green) Friday, as the fledgling legal marijuana market continues its march toward competition not only among licensed shops but also with the black market. It’s been almost five months since the first retail pot shop opened in Spokane, and now nine stores are vying for customers. The business is heavily regulated with state officials restricting the hours, price structure and method of payment.

One Spokane marijuana store set to open today

Three stores in north Spokane are among the 25 applicants awarded Washington’s first licenses to sell recreational marijuana, but only one expects to open today, the first day such sales are legal. The state Liquor Control Board announced the first list of store licenses it is issuing for communities across Washington on Monday. Of the 10 in Eastern Washington, three are in the Spokane area.
