Cannabis entrepreneurs in Washington State continue to run into resistance and roadblocks in some cities and counties, adding to the regulatory hurdles they already face.
A prime example: The owners of a proposed recreational marijuana store in Washington State are suing the Pierce County council for allegedly trying to zone them out of business.
Wetherbee accused the council of “spot zoning.”
“We hope that this action raises the awareness of what is going on and that the council comes to its senses,” Wetherbee told the Tacoma News Tribune.
Pierce County currently prohibits marijuana stores but recently amended an ordinance that would allow cannabis businesses beginning July 1.
Wetherbee has also filed suits against the cities of Fife and Gig Harbor over their marijuana bans.
