Everett: Council renews pot rulesThe Everett City Council has renewed an ordinance that effectively bans most medical marijuana facilities, including collective gardens and dispensaries. The council cited the fact that the Legislature hasn’t reconciled its medical marijuana and recreational marijuana statutes as the main reason why it didn’t let its ordinance expire June 30.
Several bills that would have addressed those discrepancies and created a revenue sharing system with local jurisdictions died in committee at the end of the previous legislative session.
The renewed ordinance does not have an expiration date.
