Cle Elum Puts Moratorium On New Pot Shops
The city of Cle Elum has banned any new pot business from opening inside city limits.
At 3pm June 16th the Cle Elum City Council held a special meeting and passed a moratorium on any new production, processing, or retail sale of marijuana.
There are two pot shops inside Cle Elum right now. They won't be affected by this moratorium.
City Council member Steven Harper tells KIMA the moratorium is meant to be temporary as the city council works with locals to create a new system of rules for marijuana in the city.
