(CBS Seattle) – Some members of the Seattle City Council are proposing restrictions on where marijuana sales take place in the city, according to KIRO TV.

The hypothetical zoning laws would keep the commercial marijuana industry out of popular tourist destinations like Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square and the Seattle waterfront. KIRO TV says neighborhoods like Capitol Hill, Magnolia, Ballard and Columbia City could potentially be prohibited from hosting marijuana shops.

The council members backing the zoning restrictions are also reportedly looking to limit the size of urban marijuana farms in the industrial Duwamish and Interbay areas of the city.

The Seattle City Council will hold a public hearing on Wednesday at 2 pm regarding the potential zoning changes.
