I hope I don't get kicked off the forum for this. Just passing on information for anyone who might want to know.

Issues are still being worked out. Remember, it's still ILLEGAL at the Federal level.

Despite the "purple haze" that occurred around the Seattle Center last night, it is still illegal to smoke in public and you will be ticketed for that.

Smelling the substance in your car is not "probable cause" for law enforcement if you are stopped for, say, speeding or something, unless the law enforcement already knows something else about you that is related.

Smoking while driving will definitely get you a DUI. Something like 5 nanograms in bloodstream or something.

Basically, can only have it in your home. Just not in public.

Still working out issues for "licensing" the sale of it. No "stores" yet.

The only good thing about this law is that now Washington State can tax the heck out of it, and maybe get out of a deficit.

Yes, it's legal, but doesn't mean it's a party around here......

Anyone got the scoop on Colorado? The other state that legalized it?

We spent a month in Seattle last year and I just returned from 10 days there. I don't see a lot of difference between when it wasn't legal and now that it is. They were standing around smokin' then and they're standing around smokin' now. It's Seattle....what can I say?
