No Industrial Marijuana on Lopez Island


Laurent Bentiou had three unsuccessful bids to build a large-scale marijuana production facility on Lopez Island. The SayNoLopez group’s efforts to fight against industrial marijuana on Lopez Island succeeded, and there is now a moratorium on all new marijuana production and processing licenses in San Juan County. The County Council enacted the moratorium on April 2, 2019 which was renewed on October 1 and will remain in effect for another 6 months during which time the county will work on regulations for marijuana production and processing.
