Clarkston City Council members could re-vote on zoning ordinance for pot

CLARKSTON, WA - At Monday night's Clarkston City Council meeting council members decided not to allow the proposed zoning changes that would authorize the sale of marijuana in Clarkston, but that no-vote could turn into a re-vote.

The cities planning and zoning department came up with an ordinance that defines where pot can be processed, produced and sold in the city.

Four council members voted against the ordinance and two voted in favor of it. Council member Brian Kolstad did not vote. That's because Mayor Kathleen Warren sustained on his behalf. She discovered today (Tuesday) that's something she's not authorized to do, but in order to have a re-vote the mayor and council members have to agree on it.
