Transcript for Lone Pot Shop Opening in Seattle
Washington state is trying something new, pot shops opening for business. Two years after the sale of marijuana was legalized in that state and ABC's Neal Karlinsky is inside one of those stores in Seattle. Good morning. Reporter: This is called cannabis city. Later this will be the first place to legally sell it. You can see in the showcases they have the pipes, bongs and marijuana hasn't arrived but later it will be in the showcases for what is bound to be an interesting day. Today in the home of the super bowl champs, everyone is talking about another kind of bowl, legal pot. This grandmother of three and competitive runner showing up to be first in line, a full 24 hours early. I never thought I'd see it in my lifetime and to be able to vote for it and to be able to enjoy it legally was just an awesome thing in my life. Reporter: Remember, this isn't medicinal marijuana. The land of Starbucks with another high priced habit for sale to anyone over 21. This is so exciting. It's like being a pioneer. I came out of retirement to do this and it's the best thing I've ever done. Reporter: It turns out voting for legal marijuana is easier than enacting it. Legalize. Reporter: While two dozen stores will open in Washington, of all the applications to set up in Seattle, so far only one was been approved. Cannabis city where they expect attendance to be, pardon the cliche, high. We anticipate for 10,000. Hope to goodness we don't get that much because we don't have that much product. Reporter: You think 10,000? Hopefully not. Reporter: Since 120 of the 2600 people who applied to be pot growers have been approved, there isn't a lot of legal marijuana available. Regardless, there will be celebrations today. They won't be sleepless in Seattle, but they might be sleepy. Stores can open for the first time in history at 8:00 A.M. Though to quote the owner here, they will open today at high noon. George? You knew that was coming. He couldn't resist that.
