Wahkiakum Weed Rules

Posted on 4th March 2014 at 17:39

As additional requests for marijuana production and processing facilities come in, the Wahkiakum County Commissioners are applying the brakes, adopting a moratorium on marijuana-related facilities. This comes after the Commissioners approved the county’s second producer license for some property out on Puget Island. At last week’s meeting, citizens for and against marijuana-related businesses spoke to the Commissioners before the moratorium was adopted. County Prosecutor Dan Bigelow reminded the Commissioners that the two applications already approved by the County would have “grandfathered use” privileges if they are ultimately approved by the Liquor Control Board. A public hearing on the moratorium is planned for later this month.
