What will legal marijuana look like in Washington?

Here are the Initial Draft Rules promulgated by the state Liquor Control Board. Today is the last day to submit comments before the board begins the process of crafting the official draft rules. That process will include public hearings.

An assessment of the initial draft rules by the Henry Wykowski law firm is available here.

I'll be interviewing various interested parties for a feature article later this week. In the meantime, the two links above provide a start.

   4 to 5 months after

   4 to 5 months after Washington state legalized marijuana your average Euro-American in Spokane doesn't go out of their way to ask me for drugs anymore, besides their usual avoidance of me like I have the plague.   I'm still a profile in "pipe bomb/fundie/meth central", unlike your average Euro-American though.

Does that make sense? That's what they told me, anyway.

Woodrow Wilson was not a

Woodrow Wilson was not a supporter of Prohibition and would have vetoed any act that was passed (which he did). Constitutional amendments circumvent the veto power.

That's my guess, I couldn't find anything about why prohibition needed an amendment. Maybe just to make a stronger statement.

Edit: Also, I'm not sure what the Supreme Court was like during that era, but they could have declared Prohibition unconstitutional (because federal power is limited by what is strictly allowed). An amendment IS the Constitution and thus the Supreme Court cannot overturn it. Nowadays, no one really worries about the Supreme Court supporting pot.
