Spokane City Council Passes Temporary Law Governing Marijuana

WASHINGTON: The Spokane City Council voted unanimously Monday in favor of a temporary city law governing all things marijuana, from collective medical gardens to zoning for retail pot shops.

The ordinance, which the council adopted ahead of the release of state laws governing marijuana, directs the city’s Plan Commission to conduct a public hearing on the new laws within 60 days. The council will then have approximately 30 days to hear more testimony and adopt the law.
