Commissioners to discuss permanent pot ban in Benton County

BENTON COUNTY, Wash. - Benton County Commissioners say they plan to move forward on marijuana ban in the county.

There is a marijuana business moratorium in unincorporated parts of Benton County as of November 14 of last year.

The moratorium will last for a full six months but expires summer of 2018.

Commissioners told Action News Wednesday they plan to have a public comment session at the end of April or in early May to discuss a permanent ban.

The commissioners would then vote on the ban, a ban that would prevent any new marijuana business from opening including shops and grows.

Existing businesses would be grandfathered in, according to commissioners.
