    By advocating legalization of marijuana in Washington st for "recreational use" to be taxed andsold in state liqour stors.

    Didnt that idea get PUNKED in California????????

    Any liquor store clerk selling marijuana is breaking federal law.

    not rocket science/brain surgery.

    Break the law or get fired.

    Saner healds will prevail - and legization will get punked in Wa state like it got punked in California.

    I congratulate Washington and Oregon on their liberal views towards marijuana. Good potential for tax revenue

    Laws change, attitudes change

    Do you know that at one time gays could not marry anywhere in the US?

    Progress is great isn't it?

    An unjust law is no law at all.

    Seattle Times is the "moderate" newpaper in seattle.

    You should have seen the Seattle PI before they went out of business........

    Then there are underground newpapers like The Stranger and Real Change............

    Here's a thought: Why not just make ALL drugs legal??

    In principle - I never liked the notion of Big Brother telling somebody what they can or can not put in their body.

    People might think I am being a hypocrite: bashing the Seatttle Times for pushing for legalization of marijuana and selling it in liqour stores - while in another post on this thread I said legalize all drugs.

    They aren't deep-thinkers. Would never hold up in court - violates federal law.

    Cut to the chase - legalize ALL drugs - but until then - enforce the law.

    unfortunately the marijuana laws are attached to international treaties, otherwise they would be changed already.
