Best of 2012 November – Our Guess at Employee Requirements for New State-Run Marijuana Stores in Washington
Washington State will be opening up the new marijuana stores probably mid-to-late next year and they're going to need somebody behind the counter.
Now, it could be a while before the stores open because there's a lot of buzz about possible federal legal challenges to both Washington and Colorado's new laws. The feds have been quiet as to what their reaction will be.

They might appear something like this:
