Unchecked pot dispensaries are undoing I-502

Unchecked pot dispensaries are undoing I-502

The News Tribune November 21, 2014

A mile-long stretch of Sixth Avenue in Tacoma has become a veritable Marijuana Road, with two licensed pot retailers, two illegal “medical” dispensaries and another illegal dispensary apparently on the way. Neighbors aren’t happy.

This is a microcosm of what is happening in other parts of Western Washington: New legal enterprises are being strangled by outlaw commercial dispensaries as local officials – including the Tacoma City Council – watch idly from the sidelines. Washington’s pioneering attempt to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana is becoming a travesty in the process.
