WASHINGTON: Puyallup leaders are finally set to act on regulations for retail marijuana businesses this week after months considering the city’s options.
The Puyallup City Council plans to vote on a proposed ban on marijuana retailers, producers and processors at its regular meeting Tuesday night. Puyallup is the largest city in Pierce County that has yet to decide how – if at all – to implement state Initiative 502, approved by Washington voters more than two years ago.
A ban on pot operations in the city of more than 37,000 people would conflict with a recommendation from the city’s planning commission early this year.
The course change is intended as a stop-gap solution until some unanswered questions are addressed in the state’s new marijuana market.
