Yakima, WA Begins Accepting Recreational Retailer Applications

Yakima, WA Begins Accepting Recreational Retailer Applications

TG BRANFALT JR. | AUGUST 8TH, 2016

Applications for retail dispensaries in Yakima, Washington open today, but residents remain divided on whether or not they want the shops in the city, according to a report from the local CBS station KIMA.

Five shops total will be allowed to open within the city limits.

“If you ask me if I think marijuana should be legal here in Yakima, I would say no, absolutely not,” resident Phyllis Anderson said in the report.

Donald Kinney, a Yakima County Jail Captain, said the city was losing revenue due to their self-imposed dispensary ban, which didn’t reduce marijuana use anyway. He warned that many of the criminals he interacts with attribute cannabis use to “how they started their criminal history,” but “the city’s moved in the right direction” by allowing legal dispensaries.
