Lynden, Ferndale plan to extend pot moratoriums

Lynden, Ferndale plan to extend pot moratoriums

FERNDALE, Wash. – Lawmakers in Lynden and Ferndale want to continue their bans on pot shops.

Both city councils are holding public hearings today as they plan to extend moratoriums on recreational marijuana businesses.

A majority of Lynden residents voted against I-502, the initiative that legalized marijuana in Washington.

Ferndale lawmakers are afraid that pot growers will be attracted to the city because of the availability of land.

They say the state hasn’t given clear answers if growers would be allowed to relocate to Ferndale.

The Washington State Attorney General previously said that cities and counties can ban pot businesses if they choose, but  is now defending I-502 in cases against pot bans in Fife and Wenatchee.
