420 Girl – Deb Greene


In Seattle, sales didn’t begin until noon at Cannabis City, a Sodo outlet that was the only Seattle pot shop to open on Tuesday. The price, with taxes, was $20 a gram. The shop sold two gram packages Tuesday. First in the door was Deb Greene, a 65 year old retiree who began waiting in line Monday afternoon, bringing a chair, sleeping bag and big book. “I voted for it, and I’m just so excited to see it come to be in my lifetime,” she told The Associated Press. “I’m not a heavy user, I’m just proud of our state for giving this a try.” Behind her was Alison Holcomb, the ACLU lawyer who spearheaded the effort to get voters to approve the initiative to make marijuana legal in 2012. “My birthday is in two days, and the first legal marijuana in Seattle might be a good way to celebrate,” she said after buying a couple of grams. – Seattlepi
