SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- The Spokane City Council approved a six-month moratorium Monday night on new medical marijuana dispensaries.

Councilman Jon Snyder said, "We need a timeout" to consider how new state rules for recreational marijuana sales will affect the medical marijuana business.

Other media outlets report the council feared a proliferation in marijuana businesses before the state finished writing its rules.

The action freezes the number of medical marijuana businesses in Spokane at about a dozen.
