SEATTLE — Seattle's first and only recreational marijuana store had to close on Friday when it ran out of stock, just three days after Washington became the second state to allow pot sales to adults.

Cannabis City opened in Seattle on Tuesday with at least 10 pounds of marijuana for sale, and by the close of business on Thursday it was gone. A message on the store's phone line said it would reopen on July 21.

There were concerns that shortages would afflict retailers once the state issued its first 25 licenses .

Some business owners planned to limit the amount of marijuana early customers could buy to try to make stocks last.

Amber McGowan, manager at Cannabis City, said the store would probably not have enough inventory to stay open for all of its regularly scheduled business hours until a delivery that was due next week.
