BIZNOTE: Canna West Seattle moving across the street soon

(WSB photo)

You might have noticed the work under way – including a brighter new coat of paint – at the 95-year-old Craftsman house at 5440 California SW. That will soon be the new home of Canna West Seattle (WSB sponsor), currently located across the street at 5435 California SW. The “new” location is actually the one for which proprietor Maryam Mirnateghi originally received what was West Seattle’s first recreational-cannabis license, as we reported in February 2016. Permits took longer than planned, so she opened across the street instead, and now, more than a year later, is almost ready to move into 5440. We stopped by Canna this afternoon to ask Mirnateghi about the timeline; pending inspections and final approval from the Liquor and Cannabis Board, she hopes to be open at 5440 in mid-May.

    Nice location – and most of current customers will be able to find it.. :)

    The old location had a pretty expansive parking lot and this location across the street has only a few slots of off-street parking off the back alley, which will probably be required to be an ADA space.

      Ahh, so an improvement then.  Good, good.

    The farther from my house the better…don’t care for this shop in my neighborhood.

      Isn’t it only moving across the street?  Wouldn’t that be like 75 feet farther away at most?

      Don’t get me wrong, I don’t care for shops like this either–they take up space that could be used for much more decent and hardcore substances like alcohol and tobacco.

      The cool thing about it is nobody needs your approval in any way, shape, or form. That’s capitalism, baby.

      Believe me, Junction Lady, I know how you feel. I’m originally from the east coast and the crazy thing about a lot of east coast cities is that their zoning laws are from the 1700s! So you end up with neighborhoods that have a church on every corner. Talk about uncomfortable! The people responsible for the murder of millions of innocent civilians, whether during the Crusades or the Inquisition or even the genocide of Native American populations, are just allowed to congregate anywhere they want. It’s nuts! You can’t walk down the street without having to pass by one of their crazy cult centers. This was before we had the internet to whine into, so I did what any red blooded American would do, and I packed up my stuff and got the heck out of there. And what a huge difference it made in my life. The west coast has been great for me, and I can walk through my town without having to deal with any religious zealotry. I feel so much more comfortable and safe now. Maybe it’s something for you to consider, maybe not.  Either way I hope you have a great week.

    Aww,now I gotta cross the street. Scary!

  • Meyer April 22, 2018 (11:17 am)

    Great news! They’ve needed a larger space for awhile. Hopefully they’ll be able to serve more customers and have a wider selection now

    Most important for access here would be gentle curb cuts and no speed bumps. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
