21 marijuana stores planned for Seattle, 1,000-foot rule changed

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 6th 2013 by THCFinder
21-stores-planned-for-seattleThe numbers are in: Seattle is planned to have 21 legal marijuana retail locations starting in 2014. 40 additional stores could dot King County, and there will be 334 legal pot retail locations allowed statewide. The numbers were announced Wednesday after the Washington State Liquor Control Board passed its final proposed rules on the legal pot industry. Insiders expect the new stores to be open by June 2014.
 
While it’s still not clear how many pot stores Capitol Hill will have and where they’ll be located, some changes in the proposals make it even more likely that pot entrepreneurs will find a home in the neighborhood. Responding to complaints that the planned 1,000-foot “as the crow flies” buffer around schools and parks is too restrictive, the board has proposed a change in the way marijuana-free zone will be measured. The new measurement will allow the permitted 1,000 feet along a “common path” between parks and schools instead of a hard-fast marijuana-restricted circle. The change could allow an area like Broadway to be in the mix for possible pot stores. The liquor board also decided that 1,000 foot buffers between pot shops and schools and parks would be determined by a common path of travel and not as the crow flies.
 
Looking back at pre-privatization liquor store locations may also provide clues. The density of retail pot locations will roughly resemble the density of state-run and contract liquor stores prior to I-1183, according to WSLB spokesperson Brian Smith. Capitol Hill had two liquor store locations in 2012.

Pro-marijuana ad posted outside NFL opener

Thursday's NFL season opener just got hit with an end-around PR play from a harsh critic that's ultra-savvy at garnering media attention.
 
The Marijuana Policy Project announced Wednesday that it has posted a giant billboard advertisement — within eye-shot of Denver's Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium — that warns the National Football League: "Stop Driving Players to Drink."
 
The 48 X 14 foot billboard, which shows a football leaning against a foaming beer glass, advises: "A safer choice is now legal here." Colorado, after all, is one of two states (along with Washington state) that have recently legalized marijuana use by adults 21 and over.
 
"NFL players are being told that they can go out and get completely drunk, but face no punishment from the league," says Mason Tvert, a spokesman for the Marijuana Policy project. "But if a player gets caught using marijuana, they could be fined hundreds of thousands of dollars, forced to sit out games and deemed a troublemaker."

Mexico City Mulls Legal Marijuana Clubs

The Mexico City council is considering the legalization of cannabis plants and the creation of private marijuana smoking "clubs" as it mulls controversial legislation to liberalize consumption, lawmakers said.
 
The capital hosted a three-day forum on drug policy amid a growing debate in Latin America over the course of the region's deadly struggle against narcotrafficking, with President Enrique Pena Nieto taking a stance against legalization.
 
Esthela Damian, a councilwoman of the city's ruling Democratic Revolution Party (PRD), told AFP the proposals on the table include allowing the cultivation of three cannabis plants per person, as well as a system of cooperatives or "non-profit private clubs."
 
The forum of experts and representatives from around the world, including the United Nations and Organization of American States (OAS), gave way to various opinions that could feed legislation the city council may debate in October.
 
The US states of Washington and Colorado voted to legalize the recreational use of marijuana last year, a move that shocked the Mexican government as it faces cartel violence that has left more than 70,000 people dead in the past seven years.
 
Former president Vicente Fox, who was in office from 2000 to 2006, has come out in favor of legalizing marijuana as a solution to the violence.
