SPOKANE'S FIRST POT STORE OPENED YESTERDAY AFTERNOON.
TO CROWDS OF PEOPLE, LOOKING TO BE A PART OF HISTORY.
THE STATE TELLS US SALES GENERATED NEARLY 250-THOUSAND
62 THOUSAND OF THAT WAS IN EXCISE TAXES.
BUT THE RETAIL SHOPS AREN'T THE ONLY ONES CASHING
IN ON CANNABIS!
KXLY4'S KYLEE CRUZ IS WORKING FOR YOU TONIGHT.
TO EXPLAIN HOW LEGAL WEED IN WASHINGTON IS OPENING
THE DOORS TO A NEW TOURISM INDUSTRY.
tourists who are flying or driving into spokane to
might also be looking for a place to stay and a place
here at 1899 house bed and breakfast, they can do
both, stay the night and light up
WHEN YOU WALK INTO THE 1899 HOUSE.
YOU INSTANTLY FEEL THE CHARM.
IT'S A HOUSE WITH DEEP CHARACTER.
this home was built in 1899 for third mayor of spokane
BUT IN THIS PLACE OF RICH HISTORY.
YOU'LL FIND A 21ST CENTURY CONCEPT.
They can smoke and it's full transperacy
OWNER LOUIE FLORES THE THIRD FIRST THOUGHT OF THE
IDEA WHEN A GUEST CALLED A FEW MONTHS AGO.
ASKING IF SHE COULD SMOKE MEDICAL MARIJUANA THERE.
there is no place around here to do it and looking
at colorado situation that was one of the biggest
WHILE THIS B&B ENCOURAGES ITS GUEST TO SMOKE AND STAY.
THEY DON'T ALLOW IT INSIDE.
this is what i call our tranquality base here.
our guests whether they are smoking or not can enjoy
LOUIE HOPES THIS NEW-FOUND GREEN TOURISM BUSINESS
-- BRINGS SOME EXTRA GREEN TO HIS WALLET.
The marijuana tourism has picked up some reservations
but it's not all of our reservations
BUT THIS B&B IS SLOWLY BECOMING A VACATION DESTINATION
FOR THOSE WISHING TO GET HIGH.
we have one coming in this weekend, they live in sandpoint
we have a guest coming in from miami
a canidan couple this month
IRONICALLY, THE OUTSIDE CLOCK IS STUCK AT 420.
THE INITIATIVE OF LEGAL WEED IN WASHINGTON.
MAYBE IT'S A SIGN...
people have called me a ganjapreneurs but it's just
about being hospitable to the guests
THIS B&B WILL STILL KEEP ALL ITS OLD AMENITIES IN
BUT NOW, YOU CAN ENJOY YOUR FRESH BAKED COOKIE WHILE
GETTING BAKED OUTSIDE.
INSTEAD OF BED & BREAKFAST.
CALL IT BUD & BREAKFAST.
