(CNN) — Business was booming earlier this week when Washington State’s first recreational pot stores opened for business. Recreational cannabis is legal for adults over 21 in Washington. Seattle Police officer Mike Lewis said they are now seeing an increase in people who are driving while high.
“It’s legal to posses in personal amounts,” said Officer Lewis. “It’s legal to smoke in private, but it’s not legal to get stoned and get behind the wheel of a car.”
Washington voters approved recreational marijuana in 2012, but the roll out of pot just started this week.
