The city of Fife’s legal efforts to restrict marijuana sales could destroy marijuana legalization efforts in Washington state.
That’s according to the Washington state Attorney General’s office, which is battling the city in court and siding with state voters who approved Initiative 502, legalizing marijuana sales in the state.
Washington AG Bob Ferguson said that in the case of MMC, LC v. Fife – where two pot retailers have challenged the city’s marijuana retail ban – he has filed a brief opposing Fife’s efforts to prevent a marijuana shop from opening in the city.
