Legal Pot Comes to the Wenatchee Valley

July 15, 2014

It’s been 20 months since Washington approved recreational marijuana through Initiative 502, including a majority of East Wenatchee voters. Now adults 21 and over can legally purchase the green at the city’s first pot shop, located on Rock Island Road. The Happy Crop Shoppe opened at 8 a.m. yesterday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, as well as over-night campers excited to be the first customers at the valley’s first retail marijuana store. Dan Langager was there for the grand opening and filed this report.
