The Grays Harbor County Commissioners have joined cities within the county and passed a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.
The moratorium will last 6 months and will put a hold on the ability of dispensaries to open in county limits. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Jim Baker explained that while it puts a hold on the dispensaries, the process of figuring out how to regulate the issue will be ongoing.
Grays Harbor Sheriff Rick Scott urged the Commissioners to pass the moratorium as soon as possible so that they can keep up with the growing number of prospective dispensaries.
The moratorium passed unanimously.
