Declaratory Order No 01-2017 – In the Matter of the Petition of Kittitas County
he WSLCB has issued a Declaratory Order in this matter. In summary, the Board concludes that the provisions of RCW 36.70A.103 do not require that the Board determine that an applicant for a marijuana license is in compliance with all local zoning and land use ordinances prior to granting a license. The local jurisdiction has the ability to determine whether to grant a local business license and/or any required permits before a state-licensed marijuana business may legally conduct that business within the jurisdiction, and to enforce its own zoning and land use ordinances. The Board is not required to deny a marijuana license based on an objection from a local jurisdiction that the location is not compliant with local zoning and land use requirements. Enforcement of local ordinances is the responsibility of the local jurisdiction.
