“We have been working with the business to get an understanding of what they are doing on that site,” Marysville chief administrative officer Gloria Hirashima said this afternoon. "They’ve agreed to shut down their business and they are doing that now.”
The business, Elevated Medical Treatment, opened in Smokey Point in March. Marijuana dispensaries are illegal in this state.
The operators of the business still believe they have a legal right to operate, but they acknowledged they don’t yet have a city business license, Hirashima said. They plan to continue discussions with the city’s attorneys.
Still, “we don’t believe they can” operate within the city, Hirashima said.
The Marysville operation came into the public eye after two suitcases full of cannabis valued at $50,000 were stolen at gunpoint from a couple in Skagit County last Tuesday.
The victims told police it was intended for distribution to patients with medical permission through the Smokey Point shop.
