The Grays Harbor County Commissioners heard public comment on Monday regarding the six month moratorium on marijuana they passed earlier this month. The main concern was the ability to find a safe and legal place to get medical marijuana.
With the Moratorium on Marijuana’s main purpose being to wait for the guidelines to come from the state level it has also put a hold on medicinal marijuana operations while the commissioners work on zoning codes. Caroline Perry says that she has to go to other counties to get her prescription and tried one of the places in Grays Harbor and said that it was frightening. Perry says that to curb the illegal operations, guidelines need to be set up so above board businesses can be run professionally.
Grays Harbor Sheriff Rick Scott says that they are working towards having safe areas but the problem of people using the medical marijuana title as a front for illegal activity remains.
The state is set to have the regulations set on recreational marijuana in December but it is a possibility that it is completed early.
