Following months of emotionally-charged debates, the Pasco City Council is moving ahead with a plan to soon allow marijuana sales inside the city limits.The council is expected to adopt the ordinance at a future meeting, making it the first of the four cities to allow retail cannabis stores.But in the end, the council was sharply divided on the issue of lifting its years-long ban. Ultimately, the majority voted in favor of directing city staff to draft a plan to allow the shops only in three types of industrial zones.
