15. Meanwhile, on the red side of the state, not so much . . .

Jack Driscoll, chief criminal deputy Spokane County prosecutor, said the passage of the law has several local prosecutors trying to figure out how to proceed. But, he said, one thing is certain: Nothing will change quickly.

Driscoll said he expects the state to take more than a year to set up the framework for how the law will allow residents to purchase and possess marijuana. Washington residents 21 and older canít just start carrying small amounts of marijuana at the first of the year.

ďThe only thing that is legal is selling marijuana through those stores,Ē Driscoll said. ďThat will be regulated by the state. You canít under this initiative have an ounce of marijuana that doesnít come from a state-issued provider. You still canít have black-market marijuana.
