Who Needs a License? Recreational Marijuana Industry in Seattle Already Selling

seattle marijuana delivery

You do not need to be medical marijuana patient to order from Winterlife. All you need is an ID that shows you are 21 years of age or older. This information, along with a frequently updated daily menu, can be found on their website (www.winterlifecoop.com). For connoisseurs of cannabis, Winterlife is like a candy store. Not only do they carry a variety of flowers: Indicas, Sativas and hybrid, but you may also purchase marijuana infused edibles such as chocolate bars, truffles, and cookies. In addition, you can purchase vaporizers, glass pipes, bubblers and other accessories.

Winterlife is not the only recreational marijuana business already selling. Club Raccoons, another Seattle delivery service, uses bicycles as their preferred transportation. Club Raccoons does not have a website but communicates through Twitter.

This is where it gets ...
