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.”
