On the evening of the day that our prior blog article regarding the Wenatchee and Centralia lawsuits was posted (June 26th), the Wenatchee city council considered changing the city’s business licensing ordinance to delete the requirement that all businesses in the city be compliant with federal law – a significant issue in the lawsuit filed against the city. That amendment was tabled, but the city council did adopt a moratorium on accepting applications for licenses or permits for marijuana businesses to give the council time to consider zoning or other regulations for marijuana businesses within the city.
