HOQUIAM, Wash. - The Hoquiam City Council has voted to adopt an emergency ordinance establishing a moratorium on Medical Marijuana Dispensaries. Mayor Jack Durney tells us if proposed actions at the State-level were to allow the Dispensaries, cities can impose a 6 month moratorium in order to address zoning issues. City Attorney Steve Johnson told the council that someone who currently operates several of the Dispensaries had contacted a property owner about renting space to open one on Hoquiam. Senate Bill 5073 would establish among other things, a framework for Dispensaries to operate under license by the departments of Agriculture and Health.
