Will Washington Cities Play Nice with I-502 but not Medical Cannabis?

In some cities in Washington, we’re already seeing local regulatory reactions to the passage of I-502. Whether positive or negative, with the exceptions of Cheney and Medical Lake, to the best of our knowledge and research, no other Washington cities have yet outright banned I-502 retail, processing, or production facilities. Contrasted with the municipal regulatory history of medical cannabis, this is somewhat of a surprise even if no licenses have been issued yet.
