Common Sense regulations residents deserve

  • Limit marijuana processing to light industrial areas that have public sewer and water.

  • Establish and enforce air quality regulations compliant with the Washington State Clean Air Act and established best practice (e.g. Puget Sound Clean Air Agency).

  • Provisions to revoke conditional use permits if odor complaints are not addressed within 5 days. 

  • Do not allow facilities within 2 miles of city limits or cluster housing.

  • Facilities must be indoors and have filtration systems that ensure no odor or measurable volatile organic compounds can leave the property.

  • Facilities must have 24-hour staffing to prevent theft or criminal activity.

  • No license transfer from other counties.

  • Water use restrictions.

  • Common sense regulation of operation size.

  • Special zoning restrictions on grow operations, recognizing marijuana as a controlled substance, not an agricultural product.

  • Establish aesthetic guidelines for facilities (e.g. no shipping containers).
