Private Marijuana Clubs Predicted for Seattle

Owners of the medical marijuana collective Have a Heart, which has three storefronts in Seattle, recently opened what might become the model for future private marijuana clubs for recreational use in Seattle.

Have a Heart’s storefront in the University District has a café where medical marijuana patients can consume cannabis – indoors, in a comfortable groovy atmosphere.

Co-owner Ryan Kunkel opened the café because, he said, he’d heard too many stories of how some of the medical marijuana patients from out of town were smoking marijuana in their cars, out on the street or in parks. ...

Seattle is looking for some remedy to keep tourists and apartment dwellers from taking their chances on the civil violation front and clouding up the city streets and parks with marijuana smoke.

Entrepreneurs like Kunkel are likely to test the boundaries of the law to open private clubs for recreational use. And, it seems the city of Seattle will be open to that sort of thing.
