Seattle City Council unanimously approves medical marijuana extension

The Seattle City Council unanimously approved an extension Tuesday for medical pot businesses that would allow them to continue to operate after Jan. 1, 2015, the current deadline for businesses to obtain a state-issued license and comply with Seattle code.

All nine council members approved the bill, which pushes the deadline for compliance to either July 1, 2015 or Jan. 1, 2016, depending on the state Legislature’s actions on medical marijuana this legislative session.

Last October, the council voted to allow medical marijuana businesses opened before Nov. 16, 2013 to continue until the end of this year with the expectation the state would address medical marijuana laws.
