List of where you’ll likely be able to buy pot released
SEATTLE -- The liquor control board released a list of pot retail location lottery winners Friday, with most of Seattle's stores apparently slated for Sodo, Ballard or Aurora Avenue locations. The Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSCLB) found it necessary to hold a double-blind lottery to permit retail locations, since the 1,174 applications for a retail store greatly surpassed the 334 stores allotted by law.The lottery was needed in 75 jurisdictions, such as Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia, while 47 jurisdictions within the states did not need a lottery and provisional permits were handed outright.
