DPD has developed a proposed update to rules addressing “major marijuana activity,” which includes production, processing, and sales of marijuana. Our proposal includes updates to correspond with State licensing requirements, types of zones where such activities may occur, and buffer distances from facilities such as parks, schools, and transit centers. Our proposal materials are on our Marijuana Zoning Restrictions webpage. More information is also available on the Mayor’s Medical Marijuana Ordinance web page.
Marijuana Legislation Passed
On October 7, Seattle City Council passed legislation limiting the amount of growing, processing, selling, and delivery of marijuana and related products allowed in certain areas of Seattle.
New Cannabis Regulations Proposed by City Leaders
On Monday, Sept. 10 an intergovernmental team consisting of City staff and representatives from the Mayor’s office, City Councilmembers and the City Attorney set in motion the process to begin deliberations on proposed legislation to establish zoning regulations for growing, processing, and dispensing of cannabis in Seattle. The intent is to help protect city businesses and neighborhoods.
