MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Though legal marijuana isn’t coming to Idaho anytime soon, legal marijuana is getting closer to the state.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2d5TLb3 ) that the newest Whitman County, Washington, marijuana store allowed by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board plans to set up shop less than one mile from the Idaho border.

Whitman County Commissioner Michael Largent says he believes the store is opening so close to Idaho to target the Moscow market, where marijuana is still illegal.

Moscow Police Chief James Fry says he may contact the shop’s owner, Premium Roast LLC, and see what they’re thinking.

Fry says there have been people caught in Idaho with marijuana packaged and sold in Washington, but there hasn’t been a large number of violations.
