(Washington state) Voters agree to legalize (recreational) pot

Source: Seattle Times

Initiative 502 held a commanding lead in initial vote counts, with overwhelming support in King County, and the measure was passing in other urban Puget Sound counties Pierce, Spokane and other counties.

One ounce of marijuana will be legal as of Dec. 6, and the state will begin a year-long process of creating a closed, tightly regulated and heavily taxed market for recreational marijuana sales at state-licensed retail shops.

I'm sure this will decrease the drug-related crime rates in my home state. Great stuff.

6. I see a court injunction before a single licensed shop opens

and then years of federal lawsuits.

8. "at state-licensed retail shops"

This makes it too easy for the DOJ/DEA. "You have a state license to sell marijuana. Here's a federal search warrent to search for illegal drugs."
