Marijuana news: Where to buy pot in Washington state

Getting stoned in Wash. state just got a lot easier since the "green" vote passed. Moreover, King and Pierce County prosecutors decided they will not wait to drop cases of marijuana possession. It will happen now, according to Kiro 7 News. Altogether, to the tune of around 250 cases will be dismissed.

That's a lot of dudes who can breathe a sigh of relief, turn around and smoke a doobie again. But what about those ready to purchase some pot in Washington state right away? That's got to be hashed out, to say the least...

Although, the law doesn't officially light up until Dec. 6, there's more good news: Deputies in King County are instructed not to arrest anyone above 21 years old if they have an ounce of "puff, puff, pass" on them.

There's a huge green light to smoke a bong freely! That's great guys, now that you know you are safe, where does someone purchase their "fatties"? Again, that's a good question...

You see, you can possess weed, can't grow it, can own some, smoke it right out in the open, can't legally buy it, but can safely have some on hand, but can't go to a dispensary yet. Like I said, kind of dicey as reported by the seattlepi.

Still want to know where to buy some "Mary Jane"? With over 53% of local voters for the proposition, it is safe to say you just...still can't figure it out? Duh, ask around! Do the math, you'll easily find out that one out of two people in the Great Northwest just purchased some or know a connection.

So, how do I know so much about reefer? Hmmm, lets see, I was born and raised in Oregon, does that help? Okay, seems like you are a little slow. Did you already take a hit today? Here it is, we don't say "Keep Oregon Green" regarding trees and clean air issues only! Shhhh, Washington state could just be called the "Emerald State" for the same reason. People have been smoking pot freely on Seattle streets and at the Hemp Fest for years.

Now that you've been thoroughly educated on whackytobacky, here's a tip for you. Next time someone in your office says, "We need to 'go green'," it's safe to say they may be a person to ask too!

Political trivia question: In June of 2011, which 2012 presidential candidate proposed a bill to get the federal government out of regulating marijuana?

If you said Ron Paul, you are correct! More information here.
