Whitefish Adopts Zoning Rules to Allow Marijuana Dispensaries in City Limits

The Whitefish City Council last week adopted a zoning ordinance to allow recreational adult-use marijuana sales in its downtown and secondary business districts, unanimously approving a framework for pot dispensaries to begin opening storefronts and selling their products after the new year.

Council arrived at the final set of rules after careful deliberation, sending an earlier draft ordinance back to planners for revisions last month while acknowledging the urgent need to have a written ordinance in place before entrepreneurs begin queuing up with permit applications next month.
