Recreational Pot Store opens in Des Moines







A new recreational pot store – Greenside Recreational – is opening this week at 23407 Pacific Highway South in Des Moines

The grand opening will be this Saturday, Oct. 25, but they’re already open on a “soft” basis from Noon – 7 p.m.

This is the first legal pot store to open between Seattle and Tacoma, and owners David Ahl and Seth Simpson are expecting a big turnout.

“We’re hoping to see a lot of customers this weekend,” Ahl told The Waterland Blog on Monday, Oct. 20, “but we’re doing a soft opening now so people are welcome to come in and check us out.”

You must be over 21 to enter the establishment, which has both edible as well as smoke-able marijuana, as well as accessories, already in stock.

As we previously reported, the Washington State Liquor Control Board allotted one retail outlet for Des Moines, and Greenside met all the criteria, including from the City of Des Moines.

According to their website:

“Greenside has a strong history with Marijuana in the Seattle community having operated in the Lake City area for the past 3+ years as Greenside Medical with top reviews in Google+, Yelp, and Weedmaps. We’re pleased to now be open to more than just medical patients and look forward to building relationships with an even larger customer base.”

You must be 21 years of age to enter Greenside Recreational Des Moines.

    Wonder why they chose Des Moines over Normandy Park ? Well I guess that’s one way to fill up at least one of our empty store fronts, way to go Des Moines City Council.

      So looking forward to having a store easily accessible to everyone in the southend. Pac Hwy, near freeways … might be why they chose this location

    This, to me, represents progress, and I do hope this will bring a few more dollars into our city’s coffers, It is within my memory how liquor was banned just about everywhere and you could buy a bottle behind almost any tavern for twice its worth. This should cut bak on the criminal element but, at the same time, we can only hope that decency will not suffer within our domain. A commendation is in order for our governing body for realizing the futility of “defending” against the inevitable. AH; I do not smoke!

    Score one for Economic revitalization!
    It’s great to have a local source for more intoxicating substances.
    just what our understaffed police department needs to police.
    Congatulations Mr. Mayor, this makes a grand legacy for the youth of our city!
