PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Pullman officials are considering whether to impose a temporary ban on new marijuana operations.

The Lewiston Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1MRd5H6 ) the moratorium would prohibit any new production, processing or retail operations from opening for business. It wouldn’t apply to the two marijuana stores that have begun operating in Pullman, or to a third in the process of opening.

The proposal under consideration by the Pullman City Council comes six months after state lawmakers chose to merge the state’s medical and recreational marijuana regulations. It also follows a decision that requires medical marijuana only be sold from state-licensed stores.

Pullman officials say certain city regulations may need to be amended due to the new law. A six-month moratorium is being considered to allow for more time to look into the issue.
