In a resolution intended to balance issues regarding the public safety and rights of patients, members of Issaquah, Washington City Council set rules for collective gardens of medical marijuana to restrict such operations close to parks, schools, and other medical marijuana gardens.
City conspirators spent lots of months gathering input from patients of medical marijuana, residents, chosen leaders and police officers to formulate the law. The outcome is an objective in the attempt to refine disorderly medical marijuana rules and unravel different federal, state and local regulations for the medical marijuana.
The approach needs a 1,000-foot barrier between a community center and a collective garden. In addition, the rule set a 500-foot barrier between a park, daycare center or preschool and a collective garden.
The rule also set up a restriction of a particular collective garden for each site.
Leaders too clarified security constraints for collective gardens – actions intended to lessen issues regarding collective gardens as potential attractions for crime. Operators need to set up cameras and security system onsite.
Also, collective garden applicants for a safety license throughout Issaquah need to go through a background check conducted by the law enforcement of the city. Issaquah can then contradict applications to persons found guilty of a criminal drug violation in the past decade.
