Local governments in Washington state may need to reconsider how to handle legal marijuana.
The Vancouver Columbian reports that Clark County officials could shift their approach after placing a moratorium on marijuana sales earlier this year.
That follows the federal government’s decision yesterday to not pursue legal action against states selling the drug under their own laws.
County spokesman Axel Swanson says commissioners will consider at a meeting next week how the federal policy affects the moratorium.
The county previously approved the moratorium because of concern for federal repercussions.
Bellingham, Spokane and other local governments in the state also have imposed similar moratoriums on marijuana.
