ACLU Represents Them, Seeks to Defend State’s Marijuana Law

Represented by the ACLU of Washington, three state-licensed marijuana business owners today moved to intervene in a lawsuit challenging the City of Fife’s ban on marijuana operations. The plaintiff-intervenors say the City of Fife’s ban on legal marijuana operations within the city is unconstitutional and is preempted by state law. The suit (MMH v. Fife) is pending in Pierce County Superior Court.

“We are intervening in this case to ensure that Washington’s marijuana law goes forward as the voters intended when they adopted it,” said Alison Holcomb, ACLU of Washington criminal justice director and the author of I-502, the state’s marijuana law.
