  • The inaugural customers at Spokane Green Leaf, the first retail shop to open in the area.

After the state licensed two dozen marijuana retailers Monday, a handful of stores opened across Washington Tuesday, officially launching the nation's second-ever legal recreational marijuana market. While three stores have been licensed in Spokane, only Spokane Green Leaf on North Country Homes Boulevard, just off Division, was ready to open Tuesday. About 200 people lined up around the corner of the otherwise nondescript strip mall for the chance to buy a piece of history. "Legal weed!" shouted the first group of customers allowed to enter the store, cheering after the first purchase was made. The other two stores expect to open in coming weeks, and the Liquor Control Board will continue issuing more retail licenses throughout the summer. ♦
