Marijuana shop in Seattle runs out of supplies in just three days

WASHINGTON STATE
Only pot shop in Seattle out of stock

Seattle’s first and only recreational marijuana store is temporarily closed after running out of stock in just three days since Washington became the second U.S. state to allow pot sales to adults.

Cannabis City opened in Seattle on Tuesday with at least 10 pounds of marijuana for sale, and by close of business Thursday it was all gone. A message on the store’s phone line said it would reopen on July 21.

NEW JERSEY
Another Atlantic City casino may close

The Trump Plaza Hotel in Atlantic City could shut its doors in September and lay off 1,000 workers, a local newspaper reported, in what would make it one of four casinos to close this year in the faltering New Jersey resort city.

The Press of Atlantic City reported that an official from Trump Plaza called New Jersey state Sen. Jim Whelan (D) and told him the casino expected to issue layoff notices on Monday.

Republicans debate tonight. The South Carolina GOP primary and the Nevada Democratic caucuses are next on Feb. 20. Get caught up on the race.
The Fix asks The State's political reporter where the most important region of the state is.
He says he could talk about Charleston, which represents a little bit of everything in the state has to offer from evangelicals to libertarians, and where Ted Cruz is raising more money than anywhere else. In a twist, Marco Rubio is drawing strong financial support from more socially conservative Upstate. That said, Donald Trump is bursting all the conventional wisdom in the state. So maybe the better answer to this question is, "Wherever Trump is."
