Readers know that since becoming New To Seattle I have railed on here (and here and here) about poor local signage. But it’s hard to top what I read in today’s Seattle Times about the opening of the city’s third pot store since the legalization of recreational marijuana:

Oltion Hyseni had been working nonstop since July on his version of the American dream — opening a marijuana store in Seattle. He opened Ocean Greens at 4:20 p.m. Thursday, but there was a hitch.

“Our sign guy was stoned this morning,” said Hyseni, 37, with a smile. “He misspelled cannabis.”

“That’s pretty embarrassing,” said store manager David Preuet. “We should have noticed that.”

Hyseni made a quick call to the sign company, which sent an employee out to unpeel an “I” and replace it with an “A.”


Some things require no further comment from me. This is one of them.
