Tacoma closing medical marijuana dispensaries
TACOMA, Wash. — The city of Tacoma has ordered eight medical marijuana dispensaries to shut their doors by Saturday because the city believes they are breaking state law.
Marijuana providers told The News Tribune the city is misinterpreting the law. Medical marijuana supporters planned to show up at Tuesday’s city council meeting to fight the move.
Philip Dawdy of Sensible Washington estimates the Tacoma dispensaries serve more than 10,000 patients in the area.
