POT: We’re creating a cannabis casbah

Washington state, by voter decree, accompanied by a federal Department of Justice wink and a nod will soon become a cannabis casbah. The banks will accept hash cash, the tokers will only limit themselves to an average of one joint every three days, and this action will take place in the basement, behind the stairs I imagine.

Because not only is secondhand smoke bad for the children’s health, but it would also be illegal. But maybe the wiser parents will opt for whatever new government-approved method of dispensing cannabis the market place brings about.

And it’s all ours; the law won’t allow it to leave the state. No one can produce or sell it without a license, and heavens knows the taxes are needed.

Down the road will there be unintended harmful consequences? If so, I’m sure our Legislature will come up with some brilliant adjustment. Or at least something regulatory with huge fines.
