Different Approaches to Dispensaries
Seattle city council passed a new law this week that sets up a system for regulating the city's dispensaries which sell pot to medical marijuana patients. The ordinance requires dispensaries to act like any other business by obtaining a license, paying fees and complying with zoning laws. Of course, dispensaries are not like any other business because they operate in a legal gray area: they're not recognized as legal or regulated at the state level, despite attempts to make that happen in the last legislative session.
