Joe Fryer of NBC News stopped by Solstice headquarters in Seattle on Monday, July 7, 2014. NBC News reported on the opening day of selling adult-use recreational cannabis in Washington state. Fryer talked to Solstice founder Alex Cooley about the rollout of legal cannabis, Solstice’s mindful approach to retail cannabis production, and why some of the major medical companies have yet to get on board with recreational or medical marijuana. You can watch the NBC News report, called “Pot Sales Begin in Washington State,” here, or through the video embed below.
“At the end of the day, we land on coming in properly, not quickly. I’d rather do it right, as opposed to fast.”
–Alex Cooley, Solstice founder
Solstice is dedicated to integrity and legitimacy in cannabis production and distribution. Our flagship Seattle facility was the first-ever permitted cannabis production facility in Washington state. We take an environmentally conscious approach to high quality cannabis production that we hope will set the standard for future facilities.
