After less than a week in sales, the few Washington’s retail marijuana shops that opened ran dry, and now some are expecting the shortage to last months.

Brian Stroh – who owns CannaMan Farms, a cultivation site in Clark County – said licensed growers are all scrambling to produce more marijuana, but they are limited by the growth cycle of cannabis.

Stroh said he hadn’t been planning to have product available at that time, as the state hadn’t previously given any indication that sales would begin so early.

Product shortages have been a hallmark of the rollout of recreational marijuana sales in both Washington and Colorado.
