Pot shop won't be allowed near PA gymnastics studio
August 6th, 2014 - 5:44am
(PORT ANGELES) – The state will not allow a retail marijuana shop to open near a gymnastics studio east of Port Angeles.
Yesterday, the state Liquor Control Board decided the studio does meet the criteria as a recreational facility and is too close to the proposed pot shop.
The Hidden Bush sought to locate the shop near Klahhane Gymnastics at 3318 Acorn Avenue, just west of the PA WalMart.
Clallam County Community Development Director Sheila Roark Miller wrote a response letter to the state about the potential location arguing it would violate the law by locating a marijuana operation within 1,000 feet of a school, park or other areas where children congregate.
The state original disagreed, but now Roark Miller tells KONP, they've changed their mind.
Currently, those applying for zoning permits in Clallam County are granted or denied a permit during what is now, a hearing examiner process.
So far, only the “Sea Change Cannabis” in Discovery Bay, has opened for retail pot sales.
