    Marijuana goes legal in Washington state amid mixed messages

    Marijuana goes legal in Washington state amid mixed messages - Yahoo! News

    But the prosecutor's admonition was contradicted by the Seattle Police Department's own instructions to officers to limit their enforcement actions to warnings, at least for now.
    Seattle police are awesome!!! (this thread is about the police response and getting into the spirit of things)

    There's still a long way to go, though.

    NPR's Planet Money recently did an episode in which a marijuana dispensary (unsure if it's medical or not) is having trouble operating because they can't get, of all things, banking services because marijuana is still illegal on a federal level, and most operate nationwide. Even those that don't and only operate locally or statewide tend to pay FICA, a federal insurance program for banks, and so still beholden to federal regulations.

    There's still a long way to go.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Absolutely, but at least the journey has finally gotten under way. It will be interesting.
