Pot NIMBY: The Redmond Ridge community is rallying this morning at 11 a.m. against plans for a marijuana processing facility on 231st Way Northeast. The gathering will be at the Goddard School, 10611 Redmond Ridge Drive NE, near the county’s large baseball park at the center of a controversial buffer-zone dispute.
