Yakima to Discuss Marijuana Ban With Public

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA. -- The City of Yakima is moving forward with their plans to ban marijuana businesses within city limits. The city announced that they will hold a public meeting on the pot ban January 21st. 

People we talked to in Yakima disagree on whether banning marijuana businesses is a good idea.

"I think we need to look at the good things that can come from marijuana consumption," Joshua Jenkins said. "The revenue that can be gained from it."

"Less mind altering substance. Less opportunity for people to be foolish (with a ban)," Jonathon Brown said.

The Yakima City Council voted four to three in November to draft the marijuana business ban.
