Scenes from the medical marijuana rally in Tacoma

The Tacoma City Council told medical marijuana proponents today that so-called dispensaries would be allowed to stay open as long as their owners filed an official appeal of the cease and desist orders distributed last Friday by the city's Tax and Licensing Department. A crowd numbering at least 200 people erupted into cheers as one dispensary operator stood on a planter outside City Hall and trumpeted the news.

"The Tacoma City Council is not opposed to safe and legal access to medical marijuana for patients with legitimate need," Tacoma Mayor Marilyn Strickland told people gathered in Tacoma City Council Chambers.

City officials said they wouldn't set hearings on those appeals until March or April, presumably with hopes that lawmakers will clarify the state's confusing medical marijuana law during next year's legislative session.  

Activists from as far away as Olympia and Bellingham cheered the decision, and later called for continued diligence as this year's legislative session is sure to include discussions of how to clarify the state's convoluted medical marijuana law.

Thanks for covering this important event today! The amazing turnout against the actions of the city was exactly what was needed to let them know this isn't going to happen in the dark. Patients deserve access, not to be made to suffer more just to find medication that offers relief.
There are roughly 10,000 patients who now come to Tacoma for Medical Marijuana, would you rather see them turned out to the streets for their medication?
Thank you to the mayor and city council for the moratorium, and some common sense in this matter. (at least for a while.)

Those people look dangerous. The pictures show them being violent and completely unreasonable. Let's continue to waste resources to keep the evil plant away from them.
