BELLINGHAM, Wash. – New zoning rules will be in place for pot businesses in Whatcom County at least until the county council changes them again.

After a public hearing last night, the council decided they would pass the temporary rules but make more changes to them soon.

Most of the council, including Barry Buchanan did not want to further delay applicants that did meet the new zoning requirements.

The added 300 and 1000 foot buffer zones are the most controversial part of the ordinance, which the council says they will be looking at in the coming weeks.
