EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — The Snohomish County Council may decide next month whether to change the rules for marijuana businesses.

On Wednesday the council delayed action on the issue, opting to decide May 6 whether to allow licensed recreational marijuana operations in some rural areas.

The Daily Herald reports the council will take more public comment from people at that meeting.

On March 4 councilmembers extended for six months a moratorium on new marijuana operations in certain rural areas after hearing hours of testimony from people in the industry and concerned neighbors.

The council plans to enact permanent rules before that moratorium expires.

Voters in 2012 approved Initiative 502, which legalized recreational marijuana in Washington.

    drugs and hookers are the ONLY thing snohomish county has going for it. time to build more court houses and furnish 3000 rockefeller…


    Wouldnt it be better to have customers go into a LEGAL store to buy a LEGAL product? Just as we used to have to do w/ liquor stores?….hate to break it to the concerned citizens but I’m sure illegal sales are going on in their neighborhood wether then want to admit it or not.
