    Medical marijuana has been legal in Washington State for 14 years… give me a break.

      the city of everett is looking to go broke. there will be numerous law suits. a city ordinance does not trump a state law. they may be able to regulate the zoning but cannot regulate it out of use. it would be unconstitutional to take away a patient’s ability to have their medication as the law states. what a joke.

        Well is that not what Washington and Colorado did to the federal law against marijuana, so if the states don’t have to listen to the feds who says the cities have to listen to the state ? Slippery slope were walking.

        Federal law vs state law, dont fall for that trap, we have the constitution on our side and that trumps ANY law! We the people voted for it, Amend 10 grants us.

    Who are these idiots on the council? I’ll bet every penny I have their medicine cabinets are full of ambian, zoloft, xanax and other powerful mind altering drugs and Everett being what it is someone in their immediate family is a methhead.

    The city of Everett is really missing the point here! Is it really a nuisance to help sick people feel better? To help chemo patients eat and sleep, to help people live in less pain? To help people cure their cancer?

    What are they gonna do when the state wants to open licensed marijuana stores in Everett and throughout the state. Wake up Everett city counsel. The people have spoken throughout the state of Washington, including the city of Everett. Washingtonians want marijuana access and suffering patients need & deserve safe access to medical marijuana.

    Get on board or be voted off the board!

    I really wish people would educate themselves on cannabis. How is it that this ignorance is still nonchalantly overlooked?

    @trembling eagle: HEAR, HEAR!

    @smokescreen, there is only a handful of dispensaries north of Shoreline, the rest are delivery services. A business that doesn’t exist cannot be a nuisance, just like you cant be guilty of a crime you haven’t committed yet.

    Really? I know it’s a little hypocritical of us to be complaining about the city not respecting the state law, seeing as how we’re not respecting federal law, but c’mon! The voters in this state have spoken in favor of marijuana time and time again, as previously stated. Correct me if I’m wrong in reference to its “odor” being a “nuisance”, but don’t the laws that keep people from smoking in front of businesses and public buildings also apply to marijuana? And as far as it being a concern for minors the new I-502 keeps marijuana from minors. Also, if their using marijuana for medical uses than it, shouldn’t be a non-issue. If someone needs their medicine, they need their medicine.

      Don’t get me wrong I don’t agree with the council. I hold a green card, but the more we don’t slow down and pick battles that possibly are more important.Things like other freedoms go away, and we didn’t even notice.Go to Mukilteo, or the next closest town that sells it, alcohol is still illegal in some counties in the south, so vote out the council or run, I’ll vote for ya.

    The drunk drivers leaving the bars create a public safety issue, therefore bars are a nuisance. Lets close them down?

    I see another Council meeting filled with angry patients telling Everett to respect State law and the will of the People!

    Everett can’t get past the sociological conditioning of Refer Madness. This is one reason why patients have to be invloved in the Rule making process of the Liquor Control Board and stand up for their rights under RCW69.51a. I-502 mandates cannabis to be controlled to discourage societies use, this implies the quality will be below that of what patients find in Collective Gardens today. Stand up and continue the strong voice of patient advocacy to safe access of safe effective medicine. Tell the elected officers in Everett their time is limited and their voice can and will be over turned.
