VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A marijuana store has opened in Hazel Dell despite Clark County’s moratorium on recreational pot businesses in unincorporated areas.

The Columbian reports (https://goo.gl/BfJqxk ) that Sticky’s Pot Shop opened last month. Clark County officials say code enforcement will issue a warning to Sticky’s telling it to shut down and vacate within 10 days.

Code enforcement manager Paul Scarpelli says when store owner John Larson applied for a certificate of occupancy for the property, there was no mention of marijuana.

Larson says he did not misrepresent the store and applied as a retail business.

This is the only time someone has successfully managed to open a marijuana shop in an unincorporated area since the Clark County commissioners approved a moratorium on recreational marijuana businesses in 2014.
