Open Letter To Snohomish, WA Marijuana Companies

By Jamie Curtismith and Shawn DeNae, Washington Bud Co

To Snohomish County Area Marijuana Business Owners-

In August 2014, the Snohomish County Executive Council proposed draft regulations to put further restrictions on I-502 operations and limits where medical dispensaries can do business. Because of the political power and financial influence of one reefer mad developer, the Planning Department has pushed these changes through the system over the past month, and on October 1st, the Council will vote to make these changes permanent. These changes will impact EVERY 502/MMJ producer/collective and retailer/dispensary.

Marijuana Business Owners will be meeting On Sunday, September 28th from 2-4pm at the Firewheel Community Coffeehouse at 2727 Colby Ave in Everett to discuss the details of this development and to devise a strategy that represents the best interests of not only industry businesses, but for the local communities who voted to support marijuana legalization. Even if your business is regulated by separate city ordinances, Snohomish County policy directly influences how local municipalities govern. Please plan to attend so that we can make our voices heard.

The documents pertaining to Ordinance 13-085/86 and Motion 14-318 to support this meeting are located on the Snohomish County website for your review.

If this issues goes to the Executive Committee as planned, then please also attend the Council General Legislative Session on Oct 1, 2014 at 9am. Council Public Meetings and Public Hearings are generally held in the Henry M. Jackson Board Room, 8th Floor, Robert J. Drewel Building (Administration Building East), 3000 Rockefeller, Everett. Please call the Council office at 425-388-3494 to confirm.

Lastly, please forward this information to other industry business owners, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank You,

Jamie Curtismith
