Hoquiam families oppose new marijuana retail store on Riverside

A new retail application in Hoquiam has neighbors up in arms.

An application for “BUDS 4 LIFE LLC” was recently added to the list of retail applications through the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board for a store location at 1933 Riverside in Hoquiam.

Neighbors of the possible location spoke to the on Monday, asking that the City prevent the store from opening due to the families that live nearby.

Kitty Thayer, who says that she lives within 10 feet of the store, said she doesn’t want it anywhere near her home.

During the meeting, councilman Dave Wilson proposed a draft ordinance that would restrict all marijuana retail, producing, and processing facilities from all homes.

That motion passed and a draft ordinance will be presented to the council.

City Administrator tells KXRO that the new store has ties to current Hoquiam marijuana sales.

Buds 4 Life has a status listed as “PENDING (NOT ISSUED)”, joining 45 other prospective locations countywide.

Currently, Grays Harbor only has the room for 5 retail applications according to the WSLCB, with 4 stores already in operation. 2 stores, one on State Route 109 and another on Boone in South Aberdeen, currently have their license issued and pending.

A representative with the state department told KXRO that the final location will be awarded to the store that finalizes requirements first and there is no time frame to expand the limits of county stores.
