Washington’s Liquor Control Board has come up with a new way to measure the 1,000 foot buffer zone required between marijuana businesses and places where kids congregate. The new method of measurement may allow pot stores in neighborhoods otherwise thought to be off limits.
Instead of "as the crow flies," they talk about the most common walking route you would take. So, for instance a thousand foot buffer from a school, leave the school campus and walk to where the store would be using the most common walking route. If that’s a 1,000 feet or more, you’re okay.
