(KING) Deb Greene has good food by her side, a good book in hand, and she hopes she will soon have some good marijuana.

"Now you get good stuff. You get it legally," Greene beamed. Greene was the first person in line at Cannabis City, a Seattle store scheduled to sell recreational marijuana Tuesday afternoon.

An issue all pot shops in Washington face is security. It is a subject John Davis, the CEO of Northwest Patient Resource Center, knows well.

"We have been open here for more than three years," said Davis during an interview in the back of his Seattle facility. "It is built like a bank on steroids."

Davis said in order to protect the people working for him, the pot, and the profits several layers of security are needed.
