Shaky start likely for Washington state pot sales

Pot sales in washington stateThe nation's second legal recreational marijuana market is opening in Washington on Tuesday, but it might not be what state voters expected when they legalized the sale of heavily taxed pot 20 months ago.

The state's Liquor Control Board was working to issue up to 20 marijuana retail licenses Monday. Stores can open Tuesday if they're ready, but it wasn't clear how many will be. The Liquor Control Board was overwhelmed with nearly 7,000 pot-license applications, and reviewing them has been slow.

Colorado, which began recreational sales in January, also experienced a bumpy start that featured few outlets, tremendous demand, lines and quick sellouts. But many of those issues have been smoothed over.

In Seattle, Cannabis City will be the only location ready to go on Washington state's opening day.
