Christine Gregoire is now upset because she helped spearhead the vote for all three initiatives when they were on the ballot legalizing marijuana, gay marriage and charter schools. She got her wish on all three before she left office. The DEA says that pot is still a level 1 drug and of no medical value, which was put into effect in 1970. Money overrules in this state, but the people have spoken. They say haha! They’ll educate our youth on the evils of pot when they can’t even fully fund our schools.
I have nothing against pot but I do have something against the state getting their sticky greedy hands on it. You’d think making three times as much on tolls than expected and the biggest transportation package in history with the second highest gas tax in the nation that would be enough. I don’t think so; not with all the overspending and bloated projects in our state and cities. Just look at what it cost for booze now that the state gave it up. They knew what they were doing just like with pot. Taxes! They’ll never have enough!
