Washington City Fights to Keep Legal Marijuana Out

TACOMA, Wash. — Aug 29, 2014, 1:48 PM ET

A lawyer for a man who wants to open a marijuana shop in the small Washington city of Fife is asking a judge to strike down its ban on marijuana businesses.

The Tacoma suburb is fighting before a judge Friday for its right to remain free of pot businesses, even though such enterprises are now allowed by state law.

The case could have big implications for Washington’s experiment in taxed, regulated marijuana.

Voters legalized pot for adults over 21 in 2012 and decided to establish a system of licensed marijuana growers, processors and sellers.
