If you are a tourist in downtown Seattle, what are your options when visiting a legal pot shop?
For one, there are no recreational marijuana stores in downtown Seattle. The closest option is to visit the unofficially named marijuana district in the SoDo and Industrial District area, which plays host to the city’s historical first store Cannabis City, the gem known as Ganja Goddess, and the wood accented modernism of the Seattle Cannabis Company.
To do this, a tourist must take a taxi, ride the light rail, or walk. Here is just a quick comparison of the cost and time involved, for roundtrip:
Taxi: $30 : about 45 minutes
Light Rail: $5 per person : about 60-75 minutes (includes walking to and from the stations)
Walking: Free : at least 2 hours
As you can see, either money is a factor, or time.
But leave it to Ganja Goddess to find a solution to a need. They created what is called the CannaBus Shuttle, which picks up tourists every 20 minutes from downtown near the Pike Place Market on 1st Avenue, and shuttles them to Ganja Goddess. Total price: Free.
According to the general manager of Ganja Goddess, they are still working out the kinks of this new little venture. Expect the shuttle to run Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, 10am-6pm.
