In Washington state I502 passed, http://seattletimes....rijuana07m.html I am soo jealous and want to move back to the west. Not only does this effect street prices this could effect the whole region pricing.

Now that its legal for Washington to sell and cultivate could we logically export to Canada and put that towards trade deficit? I understand Canada has they're own **** (BC bud and so on). But if we trade marked a blend and exported it we could charge tarrif on it just as alchol . . I see nothing but positives in this whole deal.

Anyone have status or repeal? or any other comments on the subject?

You need to look into the law a little bit more before you start getting 'jealous' and talk about effecting prices and everything else.

It only legalized recreational use (possession of less than 1 ounce). Nothing else. Still illegal to grow, sell, or transport. And a tougher DUI law for pot kicks in with it. All this does is eliminate the need for cops to arrest/fine/whatever people for minor possession.

I'm curious, how will they be able to detect pot use? Will they have a new test?
