Recreational marijuana shops in Washington are set to open next week, but the state is reportedly low on recreational weed at the moment. 

The Huffington Post reports that the state (well, at least some people in the state), is sweating bullets as the legal weed launch approaches. "Supply is going to be tight as this market launches," Liquor Control Board Communications Director Brian Smith told the Huffington Post.

"It's a lot different than Colorado. And just like Colorado did when it first opened up, it had some shortages, but Washington's supply system is very robust and in a little bit of time all those suppliers will be feeding into the retail chain and there will be a lot."

The first retail licenses will be distributed to roughly 20 outlets on Monday, and businesses will have 24 hours to share information about their inventory with the state's marijuana tracking system. The Huffington Post claims Cannabis City in Seattle might be the lone shop to open on Tuesday, and owner James Lathrop told the Huffington Post that the store will have 10 pounds of weed that will sell from "$15 to $20" per gram.
