Commissioners approve temporary ban for outdoor marijuana grows

Commissioners approve temporary ban for outdoor marijuana grows

Since Initiative 502 passed four years ago, Spokane County has been a state-wide leader in the production of recreational marijuana – a status that might soon change. In what came as a surprise to many involved, the Spokane County Commissioners approved a six month moratorium on all new outdoor grows this week. The reasoning behind the temporary ban is relatively simple; neighbors to production sites can’t stand the odor.

“When I’ve got property owners that are adjacent to a business and can’t go outside and enjoy any recreational activities, that’s a problem” explains Commissioner Al French. “And that’s not a political problem, that’s an odor problem.”
