Selling legal pot.
A business that started off booming in Washington.
But John Evich with Top Shelf Cannabis in Bellingham says while business is still moving, things are tough right now.
“We had to close our doors because we ran out of product. I think some people kept their doors open and sold pipes and things like that but our staff were just so exhausted from just how hard we worked to get the doors open that early, we just decided that we’d end up closing.”
However, he says while his doors were closed last Thursday and will be open for shorter hours this weekend, he’s optimistic business will pick up.
Evich says his customers have been understanding about the high price legal pot is going for.
He says part of the issue is people just didn’t realize how expensive it would be to run a legal, up-to-code grow room.
