Found this article stating the proposed recreational marijuana stores are getting ready to open. The article is from the Bellingham Herald. Heres a link to the source article, http://www.bellinghamherald.com/2014/06/25/3718861/three-pot-storie...
"Three proposed retail marijuana stores in Bellingham are ready for final inspections, meaning they could be among the first such outlets to open in the state once the first licenses are issued July 7.
Four licensees in Tacoma, three in Spokane and three in Vancouver also are ready for their final inspections, according to information provided to the state Liquor Control Board. In Seattle, only one store is ready for that inspection, along with two others in King County — one in Bellevue and another in Des Moines."
