We were right about Seattle’s marijuana boom coming to Capitol Hill — we just had the wrong part of the neighborhood for where it would happen first. The pioneer of Capitol Hill’s “new era dispensaries” has opened on Broadway:
The Apothecary is the 1st MMJ co op on the HILL and open today. Great location great meds great prices……..210 Broadway Ave E. above Castles mega store.
thats 210 Broadway half of 420. Come see us soon
Cass Stewart of Broadway’s brand new The Apothecary sent us a note Tuesday to let CHS know about the new co-op and invite us in for a tour. “Figure I should try to stake the claim of first on Capitol Hill,” he writes. We haven’t taken Stewart up on the offer yet but will definitely add the new enterprise to our schedule. The graphic he included gives you an idea of the services offered at 210 Broadway E — conveniently located above the Castle Megastore and next to, yes, the Highline.
In February, CHS wrote about the wave of dispensaries opening in the city and plans for the Capitol Hill Patient Group to open a dispensary somewhere soon in Pike/Pine. “What you’re going to see on Capitol Hill is the beginning of the new medical marijuana coming to the Hill,” said Philip Dawdy, media and policy director for the Washington Cannabis Association. It looks like that new era will be starting on Broadway.
Stewart said The Apothecary is not affiliated with the Capitol Hill Patient Group. It’s also not affiliated with CHS sponsor Simple Apothecary almost directly across the street from the cannabis co-op at 219 Broadway E. Meanwhile, there might be a few disappointed marijuana shoppers who wander into yet another new apothecary in the area — East Pine’s SugarPill.
