  1. North Highline Unincorporated Area Council Says:

    It is also important to note that a marijuana processing facility is in the process of opening in the building just to the south of the marijuana store on 1st Ave in Top Hat – and unlike other jurisdictions that have enacted “buffer zones” and limits to the number of marijuana stores that can be licensed, King County has no just regulations for its unincorporated areas. This means that there is no limit to the number of marijuana stores that can be licensed in White Center/North Highline – as well as the unincorporated community of West Hill/Skyway – We would like to hear from you – so please plan on attending – See you there!

  2. Hi NHUAC,
    I’m interested in hearing about the specific concerns about these businesses. I would think small, locally-owned businesses, providing jobs in their neighborhoods, would be a good thing, no? What am I missing?

  3. RickB, this is an opportunity for our community to discuss the pros and cons. Hope you will join us!
