CITY COUNCIL DISCUSSION OF LOCO WEED RESCHEDULED TO FEB. 16
January 12, 2016
(SNOHOMISH, WA.) -- The City Council’s anticipated discussion of current prohibitions concerning retail recreational dope and medical dope (e.g., marijuana) sales previously set for February 2, has been rescheduled to February 16.

The February 16 discussion (which should be a standing room only gig) is expected to include a review of new laws combining retail sales of medical and recreational marijuana - a/k/a laughing grass, gong, purple haze, sweet thang, combustible love, devil's lettuce, skunk and some other handles - as well as changes in distribution of state revenues and other aspects of the state’s laws affecting how such sales may be permitted within cities.
The fact of the matter is the powers that be don't want too much dope sold or too little sold. They want just the right amount sold so that the majority of the population is laid back in a perpetual purple haze, eyes glued to that big screen TV and football so they won't notice the country has been stolen out from under them by politicians, Wall Street, the 1% and multinational corporations.
Just kidding. We wanted to see if you were reading down this far. And you were.
Under the state’s laws, cities are permitted to decide individually whether they want to allow retail dope sales as well as permit cultivation and processing operations within their local zoning and land use regulations.
Which is as it should be. This is, after all, America and not some commie outpost somewhere in Siberia. If we want to create a new generation of dope fiends then by God we'll do so at the local level with local control.
The City Council has up to this point prohibited any retail sales of dope and commercial processing of the green, leafy substance that makes people feel so good or cultivation within its land use regulations.
But no matter. It's still very easy to buy world class loco weed in Snohomish, as much as you want of the stuff. Or so we've heard.
