  •  We are in Bizarro World now. (11+ / 0-)

    I voted yes on 502, and I think it's a great first step toward rational marijuana laws, but, for the next year we're in a limbo only a pot smoker could truly appreciate.

    For the next year, until guidelines are approved by the Washington State Liquor Control Board, growing pot remains illegal (except as permitted by medicinal marijuana statute).

    So, starting December 6, you can possess recreational pot, only if it's furnished to you by the Ganja Fairy.

    •  I'd like to be a fly on the wall... (7+ / 0-)

      in those Liquor Control Board meetings.

      Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.

    •  It's even a little bit more Bizarro... (5+ / 0-)

      ...All Things Considered (or an Orygon Public Broadcasting cut-in to that show) interviewed Jonah Spangenthal-Lee, the SPD blogger who wrote the post "Marijwhatnow" and he succinctly pointed out that while it is now legal to possess up to 1 oz. of pot, it is illegal to either grow or sell it.  He and  Audie Cornish acknowledged but didn't address the obvious question: "so, OK, where do you get it, then?"... you can't legally grow it for non-medicinal purposes, you can't legally sell it for non-medicinal purposes, but you can legally possess up to one ounce of it for non-medicinal purposes.  Questions clearly abound....
