Mayor Ed Murray’s office outlined its plan to regulate Seattle’s proliferating medical-marijuana industry Monday, including a new city license and standards for testing, packaging and advertising.

Under the proposed system, business owners would have to get criminal-background checks. The city would inspect the businesses and be able to levy fines or suspend or revoke licenses for violations.

David Mendoza, an adviser to the mayor on marijuana issues, said selling multiple times to a minor or a person without a medical authorization would be enough to lose a license.
