Yakima county is going to hold another public vote in November on whether to continue the ban. The public vote will not decide the ban but will serve as input for the council making the decision. That ban was put in place back in 2012 when it received 57.8 percent of the vote according to reports. No matter what the outcome of the vote, the county commissioners will have the final say.

Even with the current ban, there are currently 20 marijuana businesses in unincorporated areas Yakima county.
