With over half a million in marijuana tax revenue since 2014, Union Gap is closing out its second year of a First through Seventh grade summer camp, funded by a portion of the money.

The Union Gap City Council decided the best way to spend the marijuana money was to give it to youth programs to help teach them positive decision-making skills, said City Manager Arlene Fisher-Maurer.

“The council has taken a remarkable stand in using these marijuana taxes for youth and positive involvement,” she said. “I’m proud the city has traveled that road of success for our children because our summer programs speak for themselves.”
