A new pot shop opened near Prosser called "The Bake Shop". Prosser passed a law that banned any new marijuana businesses but this company found a small location where that ban does not apply in Benton County. Reports say the owner Pablo Gonzalez, received his license from the state in July and left his past job as an account manager in Yakima to start The Bake Shop.

This brings the number of marijuana shops in the area to five. Three are in Union Gap, one in Prosser, and the Bake Shop.
