Clarkston Canna4life Shop Invites Voters To Come Look At New Shop

WASHINGTON:  There’s a ban on the sale of recreational marijuana in Clarkston, but that didn’t stop Kelly Jackson from inviting people to check out the city’s first pot shop (Friday) today.

“This is not a grand opening,” said Kelly Jackson, Canna4Life owner. “This is an open house for the voters to have a chance to come, look and see what they voted for.”

In November of 2014 city council voted to ban the production, processing and sales of recreational marijuana within city limits. That didn’t stop people from lining up outside Canna4Life, before the doors opened at 11:00AM. Jackson is selling both recreation and medical marijuana. Tracy Lewis was the first customer to walk away with pot merchandise from the store. She told us she’s been suffering from chronic pain for years.

Washington State Attorney Dresses Up As Jedi To Sue City For Banning Retail Marijuana Sales

WASHINGTON:  The power of the weed is strong with this one.

A Washington attorney dressed as a Jedi sued the city of Clarkston for banning retail marijuana sales, according to reports.

Rick Laws, wearing a white swath similar to Luke Skywalker in the “Star Wars movies,” filed the motion against the city and four councilmen who voted to implement the restriction on Halloween. He claims the city’s ban is unconstitutional because the state legalized recreational marijuana in 2012.

The Jedi also claimed the prohibition is in clear breach of what local voters want — after a poll saw 1,373 residents wanting to legalize the drug, versus 1,137 who didn’t.
