Marijuana Advisory Measure

Seeking Pro-Con Committee Members

Volunteer committee members are needed to develop pro and con statements for the Marijuana-Related Business Advisory Measure appearing on the November ballot for the City of Snohomish.

The Pro Committee will write a 250-word statement in support of the measure (that is, to allow marijuana-related businesses) and the Con Committee will write statements in opposition to the measure (that is, to continue current prohibitions). Each committee will also have the opportunity to write rebuttals to the statements drafted by the opposing committee.

Committees may have up to three members who are residents of the City of Snohomish. The committees may use others inside or outside of the community as resources if desired.

If you are interested in serving on either the Pro or Con Committee for this ballot measure, please provide the following information to City Clerk Pat Adams via email or by mailing or delivering a letter of interest to City Hall. 

  • Name - first and last
  • Home address 
  • Phone number
  • Pro or Con committee
  • Reason you wish to be on the committee

Applications are due July 5 at 4:00 p.m. The City Council is scheduled to review all applicants for the committees at the 7 p.m., July 18 Council meeting and make selections for the committees at that time. 

About the Advisory Measure

The City Council placed this measure on the ballot to seek the opinion of voters regarding whether marijuana related businesses should be permitted to operate in the City of Snohomish.  Existing City codes prohibit all marijuana-related retail, production and processing operations.

The ballot measure is non-binding and advisory.  Following the election, the City Council would determine if the vote warrants taking any steps to revise current City codes.
