WASHINGTON: Walla Walla had the chance to ban marijuana sales, but is going to allow it in the city. It will be the second local community to do so, with the first in Prosser. All three Tri-Cities have put permanent bans in place.
Melissa and her sister have owned Tiki Teriyaki and surrounding properties on Rose Street for the past decade. They were surprised when some men came in with an unusual request.
“A couple gentlemen inquiring about the open space right next to Tiki’s here for a retail, a marijuana retail place,” said Melissa.
Although they declined this offer, it may not be the last one they get. Walla Walla has been moving towards allowing pot shops, and this week, a narrow vote by City Council will allow future growing, processing, and retail sales of marijuana.
