New State Law Might Make It Tougher to Spot Pot Shops
A new Washington State law that went into effect on Sunday will make it a bit more difficult to spot Seattle’s numerous pot shops and a lot more boring for those who have enjoyed the city’s creative cannabis ads and billboards.
There will be no more cuddly mascots or meowing kitties.

Signs have to indicate that cannabis is only for adults over 21 and will not be allowed to show pictures of pot plants, products or use movie or cartoon characters.
The first cannabis billboards went up in Seattle in summer 2014, and they were clever.

“The night before, I was up all night putting together the bags. We had people, not just from Gardiner, but from all over the state,” Meehan said in a phone interview with HIGH TIMES. “It was incredible.”
Meehan had announced the cleanup on the company’s Facebook page, in which he promised up to two grams of free weed for filling trash bags with garbage collected around the city.
