It looks like it's back to the drawing board for the City of Union Gap, following a switch in decision regarding marijuana.

The city council voted 4-3 to reject a proposed ban on retail marijuana stores within city limits -- two weeks after voting to reject an ordinance that would allow the stores in certain locations.

City council members say they want to see if allowing retail stores would actually make it harder for kids to buy pot on the streets, with dealers competing with retailers.

One person says she is tired of the flip-flopping.

"I think maybe they need to get together and talk and discuss it with each other off council, in a study session," said Gwen Hodkinson, "[They need to] Make up their mind, pro's and con's, we certainly don't want our children to have it."

A public hearing is set for the end of the month, the council will hold discussions on the issue.
