Reporting from a pot shop in Seattle, he gushed that Tuesday was “bound to be an interesting day.”</p><p>Karlinsky provided no opposing viewpoint to sale of marijuana in The Evergreen State or the drug as a whole. Instead, he interviewed a grandmother who showed up at one pot shop a full 24 hours before it goes on sale and a man who came out of retirement to become a marijuana grower.&nbsp;</p>
