    just after the state got out of the liquor business.

    Do you see the irony???

    The initiative is ahead in opinion polls.

    Big ad blitz planned for August - funder by the likes of rich guys like travel-in-Europe guru Rick Steves.

    You'd have a point, if pot was legal in the first place...as it is, I just don't see your point..it must be hiding...

    Was made illegal back in the 1930s - long before any of the other drugs.

    I just don't see the state of Wash stepping in and having weed stores - just after they got rid of liquor stores after 65 years.

    I don't care, just as long as it's legal...it never should have been made illegal in the first place.

    502 will go down in Nov -despite it's lead in the opinion polls now.

    And even if by some miracle it passes and becomes law - THE FEDS WILL BE ALL OVER IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sad thing is, the whole reason pot was outlawed had nothing to do with the drug anyway. It had to do with hemp and ropes.. they outlawed it to get rid of hemp ropes and stop competition for a stupid corporation....
