Seattle Church Says Marijuana Store Too Close

(Seattle, WA)  --  The pastor of a Seattle church is calling for legislators to amend the law that legalizes the recreational use of marijuana in Washington.  Mount Calvary Christian Center Pastor Reggie Witherspoon led a group yesterday that protested outside Uncle Ike's in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, saying Seattle's second pot retailer is located too close to his church on 23rd Avenue.  The law currently mandates a one-thousand-foot buffer between marijuana retailers and schools, playgrounds, and federally subsidized housing, but doesn't include churches.  Witherspoon urged the protesters to meet again near the store during the coming week, and the owner of Uncle Ike's told SeattlePI.com says he welcomes the protests.
