I-502: County Council Must Establish Clear Zoning Laws

Last November, the citizens of Washington State approved Initiative 502, the legalization of marijuana. The Liquor Control Board (LCB) has been meeting, studying, and hearing testimony in order for the state to have an orderly roll-out of this new law and have now released their regulations. Retail stores may not be within 1,000 feet of any elementary or secondary school, playground, recreation center or facility, child care center, public park, public transit center, library or arcade. (We have an amendment that will also include religious institutions.)
