State Issues 4th Retail Marijuana License in Everett But City May Say No

Globodyne

Everett’s 4th potential retail pot store is in an industrial neighborhood.

On Christmas Eve, the Washington State Liquor Control Board issued a retail marijuana license to Globodyne whose location is a small building in the shadow of I-5 on Pine street just south of the Holiday Inn Hotel. It’s a neighborhood filled with industrial buildings, the office for an ambulance company, City of Everett support services and a business that makes skylights and sunrooms. Now that the State has issued a license, Globodyne must still get a license from the City of Everett in order to open. That may become harder on Wednesday as the Everett City Council will vote to tighten rules on where marijuana businesses may locate. The new rules won’t affect the three legal retail marijuana stores already open but could affect this new location. Changes to the city’s interim zoning rules include provisions for public parking, customer access to the building, public involvement and adjacent uses. MyEverettNews.com spoke with the owner of Globodyne who said he believes his business meets all of the proposed changes to the ordinance. The public hearing and a vote by the city council on the changes will happen Wednesday evening at 7:30.
