Stickys Pot Shop gets a reprieve in court ruling

first_imgThe owner of Sticky’s Pot Shop, a cannabis retailer that was shuttered last year after defying Clark County’s ban on recreational weed businesses, said he will reopen the store after a recent victory in the ongoing legal conflict. On Friday, Clark County Superior Court Judge Daniel Stahnke issued an order allowing Sticky’s, located at 9411 N.E. Highway 99 in Hazel Dell, to reopen for business while its owner, John Larson, appeals the county’s ban on recreational marijuana businesses in unincorporated areas. The order requires Larson to file a $205,000 bond with the court before reopening the store. Mark Nelson, Larson’s attorney, said that the bond is intended to cover the $92,000 in fines the company has already accrued for defying the ban and to cover the additional penalties and costs it would owe the county if it loses its appeal. “This is an important issue that goes beyond just Sticky’s and one that will have an impact on many other licensees and business owners throughout the state,” Larson wrote in an emailed response to questions.Larson wrote that he expects to file the bond this week and that the store will be in the same location. According to Larson, it will take time to get the store running again and he didn’t have exact dates for its soft and grand openings.last_img
