Initiative 502 Marijuana To Be Legal

Time to break out the baking goods because the legalization of marijuana just passed (Initiative 502).  Soon you’ll be able to make those old school brownies, laced butter, special cookies, or have a small supply of plants for recreational use.

The passing of marijuana makes Washington State one of the the state to legalize marijuana in the nation.  You won’t be able to have much though.  One once will be allowed starting Dec 6th and then the state will start the long process of taxing and regulating the heck out of it.  It will be a tightly regulated system for sure.  Even though marijuana is still illegal by federal law the measure overwhelming passed in King County and many other counties.

I believe this is a right step forward with marijuana and hope we can really support and manage the tax money efficiently.
