WASHINGTON: A Soap Lake resident is petitioning the city council to embrace marijuana culture and bring marijuana-related businesses into the city.
Gary Gregg spoke to the council Wednesday night, asking the council members to consider taking advantage of legislation that permits and regulates the production, distribution and possession of marijuana for people 21 and over in Washington State.
“What I would like to talk to you guys about is the opportunity that Soap Lake has that, quite frankly, it will never happen in any of our lifetimes, if ever again. That is the chance to get this place into a bustling town. A place that we all envision it to be,” Gregg told the council. “And that is the idea of embracing something that would not cost us virtually any money. And that is the marijuana culture that is going on in this state, Colorado and across the country.”
