YAKIMA, Washington  — Yakima’s police chief has voiced opposition to a proposal that would allow retail sales of marijuana in the city.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reports the City Council voted earlier this month to start the process of lifting Yakima’s ban on marijuana businesses. Chief Dominic Rizzi Jr. says allowing pot shops in the city would send the wrong message to kids and lead to an increase in crime.

Councilwoman Kathy Coffey has asked city staff to look into the effects marijuana has on crime before any action is taken.

Yakima’s ban on pot businesses came after a majority of city voters opposed the 2012 initiative that legalized marijuana in the state.

The city’s only marijuana shop was open for a brief stint last year after Jaime Camps unsuccessfully challenged the ban.
