Investors Look At Marijuana Start-Ups In Seattle

SEATTLE (AP) — With legal marijuana sales about to start in Washington, start-up businesses are preparing for the market and seeking financing.

Thirteen companies are making a pitch Tuesday in Seattle to 60 investors at a meeting organized by the ArcView Investor Network.

ArcView says a similar pitch-meeting was held in September in Denver and more than 10 investors put more than $1.7 million in three marijuana-related businesses.
