Yesterday, Washington state began accepting applications to grow, process and sell legal marijuana.
Hundreds of people applied in just a matter of hours.
Applicants must undergo background checks, be residents of the state and have their business areas inspected.
They also have to pay a non-refundable $250 fee.
The state says it will cap the number of pot stores at 334 statewide, with 21 in Seattle.
Last year voters passed a ballot measure legalizing pot.
