NHUAC Board Meeting - Wednesday, May 13 at 6:30pm
NHUAC will hold a Board Meeting, Wednesday, May 13 at 6:30 at White Center Pizza - the public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
NHUAC's next general meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 4 at 7 pm at the North Highline Fire Station. We are pleased to be hosting Kim Gabbard from the Washington State Liquor Control Board. Ms. Gabbard will present information on the licensing process for the recreational marijuana stores. She wiill also provide information on the new legislation that will move medical marijuana into state licensed recreational marijuana stores. Medical marijuana dispensaries will have to close by July, 2016, or convert to a licensed recreational store. With 8 medical dispensaries now operating in White Center - the question is - how many of these will be licensed - how many marijuana stores should be clustered in one community.

NEWS FROM THE KING COUNTY COUNCIL
In December, 2013 the King County Council approved a 1 year moratorium on Medical Marijuna Dispensaries in the unincorporated Areas of King County. The Moratorium was set to expire on Dec 16. The council has now approved a 6 month extension of the moratorium (Ordinance 2014-0380).
Under this ordinance, no new Medical Marijuana Dispensaries cannot open in unincorporated King County - this includes all of North Highline neighborhoods: White Center, Top Hat, Boulevard Park and Glendale.
Did you know that there are 8 unregulated dispensaries operating in a 3 block area in the White Center Business District.

King County Regional Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS)
AFIS provides criminal identification services to officers, investigators, prosecutors, and corrections staff. Program staff fingerprint and identify all inmates booked into county jails. This helps to identify possible wanted or dangerous offenders before they are released, even if they provide false names and incorrect information. Staff also recover and process fingerprints from major crime scenes. The AFIS Program’s existence aids in solving crimes throughout King County, and contributes to the safety of both officers and citizens.
The AFIS website is www.kingcounty.gov/afis and includes the annual report, videos, and other information.
