Prospective marijuana retailer sues state Liquor Control Board over Kennewick ban

A recreational marijuana retailer has sued the state Liquor Control Board, seeking to get the state agency to sue counties and cities such as Kennewick that ban legal pot businesses.

Americanna Weed’s case against the Liquor Control Board was filed Wednesday in Thurston County Superior Court.

The business, owned by Tad Seaton and Cynthia Ventura of Everett, sued Kennewick over the city’s ban on recreational pot businesses a few months ago. Benton County Superior Court Judge Vic VanderSchoor decided last week that Kennewick’s zoning ordinance defining pot businesses as a prohibited use is constitutional and not preempted by state law.
