Spokane County commissioners lift moratorium on outdoor pot grows

June 21, 2017

The Spokane County commissioners have lifted a moratorium on outdoor marijuana farms, but they replaced it with zoning rules that are significantly more restrictive to the pot industry.

All new farms and expansions will require a conditional use permit, which can only be obtained after a public hearing process. New growing, processing and retail operations are now banned on rural 5-acre lots and urban reserve lands – sites where urban development may occur in the future.

Despite those restrictions, Crystal Oliver, who owns a pot farm north of Spokane with her husband, called the new ordinance “a really good approach to balancing the needs of the cannabis farmers and the needs of the neighbors.”
