SEATTLE – Hundreds of medical marijuana businesses here face closure because they’re being told to get licenses that don’t legally exist.
Marijuana dispensaries across Seattle began receiving letters last week telling them they need to get a special state license to remain open past next year. The problem? The state hasn’t yet created those state licenses. Seattle has more than 330 medical marijuana businesses, which are less regulated than the city’s handful of licensed recreational pot shops.
