Clark County needs to read State Law in regard to what non-commercial, private, unlicensed, patient collective garden MAY do under State Law:
Collective gardens.

(1) Qualifying patients may create and participate in collective gardens for the purpose of producing, processing, transporting, and delivering cannabis for medical use subject to the following conditions:

(a) No more than ten qualifying patients may participate in a single collective garden at any time;

(b) A collective garden may contain no more than fifteen plants per patient up to a total of forty-five plants;

(c) A collective garden may contain no more than twenty-four ounces of useable cannabis per patient up to a total of seventy-two ounces of useable cannabis;

(d) A copy of each qualifying patient's valid documentation or proof of registration with the registry established in *section 901 of this act, including a copy of the patient's proof of identity, must be available at all times on the premises of the collective garden; and

(e) No useable cannabis from the collective garden is delivered to anyone other than one of the qualifying patients participating in the collective garden.

(2) For purposes of this section, the creation of a "collective garden" means qualifying patients sharing responsibility for acquiring and supplying the resources required to produce and process cannabis for medical use such as, for example, a location for a collective garden; equipment, supplies, and labor necessary to plant, grow, and harvest cannabis; cannabis plants, seeds, and cuttings; and equipment, supplies, and labor necessary for proper construction, plumbing, wiring, and ventilation of a garden of cannabis plants.

(3) A person who knowingly violates a provision of subsection (1) of this section is not entitled to the protections of this chapter.

[2011 c 181 § 403.]

Spokane, Wash – Even though you can light up, you can't buy pot. But in less than a year, that’ll probably change.

Spokane's city council and planning commission are already starting to figure out how the city's going to handle incoming marijuana businesses. Spokane City Council members said they want to get the city prepared for the inevitable new business. According to the Spokane City Council, the state’s liquor control board has until Dec. 1 to write the rules, and have licenses ready to hand out.

Councilman Jon Snyder said, in the mean time, the City of Spokane needs to figure out where new stores can go. The way Initiative 502 is written, the liquor control board isn't allowed to issue a license to a marijuana business within 1,000 feet of schools, playgrounds, parks, libraries, public transit centers among a few others. So it's the planning commission's job to identify certain areas of town that will legally work.

Snyder said the city has a lot of work to do to get ready, but it's important to do it now. That way the community will be protected, and people can profit from what could be a lucrative business.

“We need to engage folks who want to get into the marijuana business and see what their concerns are, landlords, what their concerns are. Real estate folks. This is the time for people to start think about how this will actually work,” Snyder said.

Here are a few important dates you need to know:

-Feb. 10 is the last day the liquor control board will accept public comment before drafting rules for marijuana producers. A producer is someone who can produce and sell marijuana.

-The first public hearing will be on April 10.

-May 18 the rules for marijuana producers become effective, which will lay out parameters and how to go about opening a business.

-Shops will be able to open their doors December 1.

Drift: 5oo ft.? Sedro Woolley only has one industrial zone I believe. I must be less than 1000 ft. of something so they ignore the law as needed: http://www.goskagit.com/all_access/s-...
SEDRO-WOOLLEY — Medical marijuana patients may now grow cannabis together in certain parts of Sedro-Woolley.

The City Council voted 6-1 Wednesday night to approve an ordinance that allows medical marijuana collective gardens in industrial zones but bans them elsewhere in the city. Such gardens may have no signage besides an address and may not be within 500 feet of a school.'

Drift, in case you missed it:
The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama says he won't go after Washington state and Colorado for legalizing marijuana.

In a Barbara Walters interview airing Friday on ABC, Obama is asked whether he supports making pot legal. He says - quote - "I wouldn't go that far."

But the president won't pursue the issue in the states where voters legalized the use of marijuana in the November elections. Marijuana remains illegal under federal law.

Obama says - quote - "It does not make sense from a prioritization point of view" to focus on drug use in states where it is now legal.

Marijuana officially became legal in Washington state last week; it becomes legal in Colorado next month.
