Commissioners’ approve marijuania moratorium in Asotin County

Asotin County may join the small list of counties and cities that have enacted moratoriums to ban marijuana, even though 56 percent of Washington State's voters last year approved Initiative 502. That initiative made it legal to use marijuana recreationally in the state. Locally, 51 percent of Asotin County's voters (5,027) voted no, while 49 percent voted yes (4,829) on the initiative.
