"It literally is the building of an industry and I don't think you see that twice in a lifetime," said Hilary Bricken with the law office of Harris and Moure in Seattle.
The firm specializes in cannabis law, specifically in helping potential business owners set up their business and apply for a growing or selling license. They started a group geared to help entrepreneurs set up a marijuana business and so far 50 clients have already applied.
"The reason why you come and see the attorney is to do things like set up your operating agreements and your shareholders agreement which can be very complicated," Bricken said.
Spokane has the potential to see eight recreational stores. Alex with Amerfarms wants to supply those stores and hired Bricken to help procure grower and processor licenses.
