There are lots of things Seattle is better at than anywhere else (at least 19 of 'em, in fact), but unfortunately legal weed sales aren't one of them... darn you Colorado for writing a better law than I-502!

Seattle's 5 Best Legal Marijuana Shops
The self-proclaimed home of “your favorite uncle,” Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop is open seven days a week with a constantly updated menu, including edibles like bite-size chocolate chip cookies, top shelf buds, and the can’t-miss cannabis balm that's “real party for your lips."
Opened in November of last year, this place earns points for its slogan “Taking Cannabis to a New High,” but mostly for slinging potent goodies like weed bonbons and oatmeal raisin cookies that will ironically just make you super-hungry for things like bonbons and cookies.
Just off Aurora, Ocean Greens' daily specials include strains named after candy and a little something called the Heisenberg. Curious? You ought to be. Also on the menu are Apple Krisps, funky girl scout cookies, Chocolove milk chocolate, and much more. There are more than 2,000 legal marijuana growers and Ocean Greens pride itself on sniffing out the best strains.
Seattle’s first licensed marijuana retail shop, this popular shop in the Industrial District has a bit of a reputation for long lines. However, with a menu touting Caramelo truffles, infused candy, pot brownie bites, and more; it’s well worth the wait. Fun fact: the first person to buy weed from Cannabis City (incidentally a Grandma) donated some to the MOHAI.
Cannabis currently has two locations (the one in the Fremont is a medical co-op), with a third coming to SoDo this Spring, and the main retail space isn't some a dingy pot shop: it's got walls made from reclaimed wood and professional staff that'll help you choose between as slew of strains and weed-infused products.

This weed utopia comes complete with a well-stocked glass shop and vaporizers galore. The Central District’s very own marijuana mecca, the inventive menu here has it all. Caramel apple weed chew? Check. Spicy cheddar crackers with a kiss of marijuana? Check. A pre-rolled hybrid joint inspired by Thin Mint girl scout cookies? Check. Debit cards are fair game at the glass shop, but make sure to have green stuff for… well, the green stuff.
Get all kinds of spiritual with the Ganja Goddess. This place gets ten points for the slogan “Taking Cannabis to the New High”. Slinging potent goodies like weed bon bons and oatmeal raisin cookies, you’ve got your munchies taken care of with their offerings.
