SEATTLE - From Salty's on Alki, there's a great view of a city wild for the Seahawks. 

In a banquet room, about 60 people are expected on Super Bowl Sunday to cheer on the team. 

There will also be Broncos fans in the crowd.

The two teams in the Super Bowl come from the only states to have legalized recreational marijuana.

People in the pot business from Colorado and Washington will gather at Salty's to celebrate.    

"It couldn't be more fitting," said Peter Norris, Washington CEO of Diego Pellicer, a new retail marijuana company planning stores in Washington and Colorado.

Norris is hoping for national TV exposure on Sunday.

"It helps for the movement of legalizing marijuana, cannabis across the country," Norris said.

Salty's managers say they will allow partygoers to display marijuana in packages for photo-op purposes.

The restaurant will not allow marijuana consumption.
