Higher Leaf Marijuana Kirkland and Bellevue recently expressed their appreciation for the Kirkland City Council’s resolution to support for H.R. 3534, the State Marijuana and Regulatory Tolerance (SMART) Enforcement Act.

The entire Higher Leaf organization is thankful for the council’s support of the industry, a press release issued by the company states.

“We are incredibly appreciative of the city council’s decision to support the SMART Enforcement act,” said Molly Honig, owner of Higher Leaf, in the release. “The city council supporting our local businesses and economy as we add jobs and state revenue is something that we are grateful for every day.”

The SMART Enforcement Act was reintroduced July 27 by Congresswoman Suzan DelBene to protect medical patients, recreational users and businesses in states that have legalized and regulated marijuana from being prosecuted now or in the future.
