There’s a vote before the city council about the potential for allowing cannabis retailing in Seattle’s historic districts. Columbia City and Chinatown/I.D. have had their districts put on the exemption list in the city legislation. Ballard has not.
The Council vote is 1/11 – so please email the city council before then, including our District 6 Rep Mike O’Brien with your feedback, concerns, and position.
Well Vegan Biker, I was on foot with my friend who has mobility difficulties but still likes to get out and about. In and out of the car is tricky and those two shops are in fact out of walking range for her. So yes, we were shopping in old Ballard and I see no reason why there shouldn’t be a shop there too.
Thanks for your snark and congratulations on your health and mobility! May the force be with you!
Marigold – I didn’t intend that to be a “snark” in any way, shape or form! So sorry that it came over that way, I was just being cheeky!
And I was not aware of your situation with your friend. Please accept my apologies, I really did not mean to upset you.
I agree that there should be a recreational shop on Ballard Ave if they can afford the rent!
JM – ha, ha, that is a funny image to think of. When I think of this idea of drone delivery I imagine a sky full of little flying machines and people trying to hijack them all over the place. Could be easier than stealing from a porch! I can imagine people complaining “my weed shipment got hijacked again!”
