Which Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Will Be Forced To Close In Seattle?

The City of Seattle is planning on shutting down quite a few medical marijuana dispensaries. The plan comes after the passage of Senate Bill 5052, which makes drastic changes to the medical marijuana program in Washington. Below is a brief explanation of the plan, via an earlier article that I syndicated from The Joint Blog:

closed anaheim dispensaries medical marijuana

Under this proposal - which is designed in response to the passage of Senate Bill 5052- the first tier would include those distributing medical cannabis to patients under 21 (which is now illegal), and those with a business license obtained after January 1st, 2013. The second tier would consist of outlets that have delivery services, and those that allow medical cannabis consumption on-site. The third tier would consist of outlets that distribute cannabis that has not undergone microbial or potency testing, and those located within 500 feet of another licensed or unlicensed cannabis establishment, playground, public recreation center or a park, or within 1,000 feet of a school.

Under Holmes' plan, outlets in the first tier would receive a letter, likely within 1-2 months, demanding they cease operations, with those in tier two and three likely receiving a letter shortly after. Outlets that don't fall into these tiers would be given the opportunity to continue operating until the July 1st, 2016 deadline established by SB 5052.

So the question then becomes which medical marijuana dispensaries are likely to close under this new proposal? Seattle Weekly compiled a list (59 total), which can be found below:
