BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The prospective owners of a Bellingham pot retail store had their final inspection yesterday and say they have a pot supplier lined up.

Tom Beckley and John Evich hope to open Top Shelf Cannabis on Hannegan Road next week.

Evich says he had to use social media to track down licensed producer/processors in Whatcom County and finally found one.

 

He says they have to get their license first before they can buy the pot.

If Top Shelf Cannabis receives its retail license on July 7, it will be one of the first 20 stores to open in Washington State.
