County adopts moratorium on I-502

 


Klickitat County has adopted a moratorium on the production, processing, and sale of marijunana in unincorporated areas of the county, according to a statment issued by the county Board of Commissioners.

“Marijuana producers, processors, and retailers are designated as prohibited uses during the pendency of the moratorium,” the statement said. “A duly advertised public hearing will be held within 60 days of moratorium adoption.”

Ths statement adds the county is taking this measure because of marijuana’s status under federal law and because Washington is in very early stages of addressing and initiating Initiative 502, with impact of the measure’s implementation still uncertain.
