YAKIMA, WA -- Since the passage of Initiative 502, a lot of people have questions about marijuana use and its impact on the workforce.

On Thursday, the Yakima Rotary Club held an open discussion on the topic to try and provide some answers.

Yakima Attorney Quinn Plant said there's a lot of confusion and uncertainty when it comes to knowing exactly what the law is. Especially when it comes to medical marijuana.

"It's sort of like a half written law to be honest with you," said Plant. "It's not entirely coherent. It can't really be implemented as written, and I think it's also important to know that it's going to change radically in the next few years."

Currently there is a six month moratorium on marijuana production and sales in the City of Yakima. The city said they want more control over where pot stores can go. The state has issued 14 licenses in Yakima County including five inside city limits.
