A second marijuana retailer has opened for business in the southeast Alaska city of Sitka.
The Northern Lights Indoor Gardens began selling its products February 16. The business is located in the same strip mall as the city’s first marijuana business, Weed Dudes, The Sitka Sentinel reported Tuesday.
Northern Lights owner Micah Miller said he’s been selling about a pound of pot each day and likely won’t have enough to keep up with demand before his next crop is ready in late March.
He expects sales to pick up in March when commercial fishermen come into town for herring season.
“My doors will be closed at some moment for a minute,” said shop owner Micah Miller. “Really, I wish we had twice the operation.”
Miller said he wants to add a smoke lounge for customers if the Alaska Marijuana Control Board allows on-site consumption in the future. The board voted down a proposal on Feb. 2 that would have permitted marijuana use in stores.
