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! That said, there are a few legit retail operations competing with the medical marijuana clinics, and that dude Ferndog who you went to high school with, to legally satisfy the city's weed needs. These are the five best...

Uncle Ike's

Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop

Central District
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."

Ganja Goddess

Ganja Goddess

Industrial District
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.

Ocean Greens

Ocean Greens

Lichton Springs
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.

Cannabis City

Cannabis City

Industrial District
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.

Dockside

Dockside Cannabis

Shoreline
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.
