Now that the Pasco City Council has begun chiseling out details to partially lift its ban on retail cannabis, where could those shops be allowed? Here's what we know so far: Washington state law already bars licensed cannabis production and processing centers and stores from being within 1,000 feet of schools, playgrounds, public parks, libraries, child care centers or public transit centers. Pasco plans to draft an ordinance allowing retail marijuana stores in three areas zoned for industrial use — Light, medium and heavy industrial districts.
