In a 3 -1 vote, the Kern County Planning Commission decided Thursday not to ban marijuana, and instead move forward with regulation.

This comes two days after the Bakersfield City Council voted to ban marijuana dispensaries in the city.

The commissioners said the potential for creating jobs and boosting tax revenue was too good to turn down.

County supervisors will take up the issue Oct. 24.
