• Former Microsoft executive chooses location for pot shop

    Updated:

    SEATTLE - A former Microsoft executive has picked the spot he plans to start selling recreational marijuana. Jamen Shively says he wants to build an international brand of marijuana at a flagship store in Seattle’s SODO Neighborhood. HE plans to put the store on Fourth Avenue S., just south of Holgate.

    He hopes to be selling pot by the middle of next year. Shively expects annual revenue of between 25 and 50 million dollars from the store.

    Shively even wants to start a reality TV show out of the store. He is currently shopping that idea to networks.

    Pot retail licenses will be awarded by lottery. Shively says if he doesn’t win, he'll buy a company that does.
