Seattle’s Department of Planning and Development has prepared a map of where pot businesses — stores, farms, processing plants — might be located after state officials proposed revised rules on Wednesday.

Proposed revisions would slightly relax the state pot law’s 1,000-foot buffer between pot businesses and venues frequented by youth. Specifically, revisions would change the calculation of 1,000 feet from a straight-line measurement to a “common path” approach, using the course a person would actually walk rather than a route a crow might fly.

City planner Brennon Staley stresses that this map is a rough preliminary view with assumptions and methodology that hasn’t been vetted by state officials. It generally reflects the proposed zoning for pot businesses the City Council is considering.
