Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy vetoed the County Council’s latest attempt to ban marijuana businesses Thursday, the eve of the expiration of the county’s old ban.

“I am vetoing this ordinance because my job as an elected official requires me to advance the will of the people who voted in 2012, in a comprehensive election, to legalize recreational marijuana,” McCarthy wrote in a June 30 letter to Council Chairman Doug Richardson.
