Many people visit Washington thinking that you can light up your weed just about anywhere. While our state is quite friendly to cannabis, knowing your surroundings and being respectful to your environment helps lessen the chance of dealing with police. Upon arriving at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, one of the best cannabis stores you could visit is Evergreen Market. I’ve visited 2/3 of their locations and know that their Renton stores have a ton of experience with consuming the state’s best cannabis.
Outside of a residence, cannabis should be kept sealed and out of sight. If you’re considering smoking weed as you walk around the streets of Seattle, Tacoma, or wherever, legally its not a good idea. Sidewalks, parks (both federal and state), public hiking trails, and ski resorts are all locations where cannabis consumption could subject you to a ticket.
Washington state law allows recreational cannabis use for those who are 21 and older. The state protects private marijuana use which means users can consume openly as long as the owner of the property allows it. When it comes to consuming in pubic, it is 100% illegal.
If you’re visiting Washington and looking for a cannabis-friendly place to smoke or stay at, follow us on Instagram and send us a DM. We’d love to talk more and share info on places to visit and what products to try. With so many newbies entering the world of legal marijuana, it is important for budenders to properly educate guests.
Depending on your tolerance and experience with cannabis, make sure to ask for weed that is 16% – 28% THC. Certain strains have lower THC levels and still provide the mind and body with varying types of energy and highs. For more information on quality cannabis in Washington, or specifically Auburn and Renton, visit Evergreen Market’s website.
