Sequim stops pot shops, for now
February 27th, 2014 - 5:38am
(Sequim) – The city of Sequim is putting a halt to marijuana stores, at least temporarily.
The city council this week approved a six-month moratorium on new marijuana businesses.
The council cited uncertainties in the development of the state's laws that have legalized recreation marijuana.
The city's planning commission had recommended the halt for now as the city grapples with possible zoning changes to deal with the pot businesses.
The city council will take up the issue again as part of a public hearing on proposed zoning rules related to marijuana businesses on March 10.
