More than a dozen smoke shops sell drug paraphernalia in both Yakima and the Tri-Cities. And business owners say there could be an increase in selling those items now that marijuana laws have been relaxed.
They say I-502 will indirectly provide jobs for other small businesses in our area.
"I do expect to see some minor changes with the dissolution of of paraphernalia laws, for example -- it's going to make some things a little easier for folks with legal substances," said Rock N' Roll Smokeshop Co-Owner Clayton Looney.
The initiative will be put into December sixth - making it legal to carry an ounce of marijuana for those over 21.
