Herbal Outfitters opened Saturday morning in Valdez, Alaska, attracting more than 250 customers in line. It was the first store to sell marijuana in Alaska after voters approved recreational use of marijuana in November. The decision triggered a national economic recession and led to the federal government funneling disaster relief money into the state. The oil industry is also a major part of the economy in other states, including neighboring Canada.
The Herbal Outfitters store is in an historic downtown building that has seen better days. Previously, Herbal Outfitters was a tanning salon and an ice cream parlor. Before it opened, it was the city’s first official bank. Now, after two years of legalizing pot, Herbal Outfitters is slated to sell more than 10 strains of cannabis. The town is expected to be packed on Saturday, the day the first marijuana store opens.
The opening of Herbal Outfitters in Valdez comes amid growing opposition from concerned citizens. Christy Franklin, the owner of the Weathered Anchor next door, says that the opening is a sign of progress. However, there is another side of the story. She is opposed to the business and has filed a petition with the city to ban commercial marijuana in Valdez. The store is located in the middle of town, with teenagers and adults walking by every day.

The store has 90 days to close before the petition is passed, which will result in a statewide ban.
