In the 2015 legislative session, the State Legislature adopted legislation to combine the medical marijuana and recreational marijuana laws as it relates to retail establishments. As a result of this change, the State Liquor and Cannabis Board is proposing new regulations for retail marijuana stores and marijuana cooperatives, including the number of retail establishments that will be allowed in each city or county. Under the previous rule, Everett would be allowed to have a maximum of five stores. Under the new regulations, Everett would be allowed to have up to ten stores.
On February 20, 2018, Planning Commission held a public workshop to consider amendments to the City's current regulations regarding retail store limits. A public hearing before Planning Commission will be scheduled at a later date. If you would like further information regarding this matter, please contact Allan Giffen at 425-257-8725.
