The History of Cannabis in Seattle
Cannabis City was the first legal recreational pot shop to open in Washington State, on the historic day of July 7, 2014. Since then, we have served thousands upon thousands of of people from around the world – ranging from heavy consumers to curious, first-time greenies. Our founder, James R. Lathrop, DNP PhDc, is a Doctor of Nursing Practice, entrepreneur, and U.S. Army veteran.
Prior to opening Cannabis City, he operated a successful Medical Marijuana Clinic in Seattle. “Dr. James” has been an outspoken supporter of safe and legal cannabis use for many years and encourages every person over 21 to come and check out his store!
