OLYMPIA — The Washington State Liquor Control Board has proposed limits on the number of stores for each county and large city. But some Washington counties and cities have passed ordinances blocking any marijuana businesses from operating within their boundaries.

The board says it will still issue licenses to qualified applicants in those locations, but it will be up to the license holder to challenge the local government’s restriction and obtain a local business license. That sets up potential legal battles between a state-licensed store and reluctant city.
