Marijuana Zoning on City Inside/Out
City Inside/Out: Marijuana Zoning
As the deadline approaches for the Washington State Liquor Control Board to issue marijuana licenses, Seattle is scrambling to set up its own guidelines. Which neighborhoods will see pot shops sprout? Will cannabis tourism bloom in Seattle? Is the state headed on a collision course with two competing systems in place? City leaders are trying to get ahead of the curve by adopting new zoning rules, but will pot entrepreneurs push back on the restrictions? We visit The Joint and hear from owner Shy Sadis about his plans to open both recreational and medical pot shops. We also speak with Mark Kleiman, the state`s new marijuana guru, and Seattle City Councilmember Nick Licata about how to handle this controversial new law. In studio, we clear the haze with Council President Sally Clark; Seattle attorney Hilary Bricken; Dockside Co-op founder Oscar Velasco-Schmidt; and David Mendoza, president-elect of the Latina/o Bar Association of Washington.
