The state has now issued licenses to 251 growers, 208 processors (many of whom are also growers) and 65 stores. Pullman's first store, MJ's Pot Shop, opened about two weeks ago and prices started around $36 a gram there. You can find all of the region's open stores at Inlander.com/GreenZone.

• In Colorado, a Denver ad agency is feeling the blowback from telling the New York Times that in working to normalize marijuana use it was "weeding out the stoners." "I don't understand why one group has to be insulted so the other can feel better about what they're doing," a Colorado photographer focused on the marijuana industry told the Cannabist. "It's one of the things that I've always enjoyed about cannabis culture: There doesn't have to be a cultural divide."

• According to a newspaper in South Bend, Indiana, high-quality weed from Washington and Colorado is fetching $800 an ounce on the black market. According to the cops, "they call this stuff 'Loud.'"

• Washington, D.C., residents with nonviolent marijuana convictions could get those records sealed under a bill that passed a first vote of the city council, reports the Washington Post.

• A Georgia man tells local TV that cops mistook the okra plant in his garden for marijuana, knocking on his door with a K9 unit and a helicopter overhead. Yes. A helicopter.

• This year's campaigns for legalization are heating up. Rick Steves is campaigning in Oregon and the New York Times has endorsed measures in Oregon, Alaska and D.C.

• The adorable creature pictured above is called a fisher, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing listing it as a threatened species. Part of the reason: illegal pot farms' use of rat poisoning. The FWS says the poison is increasingly being found in fishers in California and Oregon, threatening their already eroding populations. ♦
