The Challenge of Legalizing Pot

Posted By on Wed, May 22, 2013 at 3:01 PM

Maybe you forgot, but our neighbors to the north voted to legalize pot last November. Along with Colorado, Washington has made the possession and consumption of marijuana legal for individuals over 21 years of age.

As you can image all the pot heads up there in WA were over joyed at the prospect of pot cafes and smoking a joint on the street outside their favorite concert hall. But before that can happen the state must figure out how the heck to legalize a drug still on the Federal Government's list of criminal substances!

Here is a great article in today's New York Times by guest commentator Bill Keller on this very subject.

Oregonians should be paying close attention to our neighbors actions to the north, we may be faced with the same task very soon...
