BREAKING NEWS

IN WASH. STATE
Smoke that weed, exchange those vows. You’re legal dude.

December 06, 2012




Gov. Chris Gregoire & Sec. of State Sam Reed certify the election of Referendum 74, surrounded by couples and community members who have supported marriage equality. CLICK TO ENLARGE
(SEATTLE, WA) — Supporters of two history making initiatives that voters approved in Washington State are happy as clams in warm sea water today, and those who opposed them find little to cheer about.

The same same-sex marriage and marijuana use initiatives –measures that had been widely and closely watched across the country as possible bell-weathers of a rapidly growing change in social consciousness across America about the two issues - became legal at midnight Thursday in Washngton.

On Wednesday, Gov. Chris Gregoire signed into law a measure legalizing the same-sex marriage law. Fifty-four percent of voters approved Referendum 74.

Gregoire and Secretary of State Sam Reed certified the election Wednesday afternoon and were joined in the historic moment by same sex couples that plan to tie the knot now that it’s legal.

“For the past twenty years we’ve been saying just one more step. Just one more fight. Just one more law. But now we can stop saying ‘just one more.’ This is it. We are here. We did it,” said Governor Gregoire.

“In just a few hours, all Washington families will have the opportunity to receive a marriage license. As one of three states in the nation where voters affirmed marriage equality at the ballot box - there is no more resounding endorsement. I thank them for standing up for what is right.”

So today is the day when gay and lesbian couples can start picking up their wedding certificates and licenses at county auditors' offices.

King County and Thurston counties led the way, opening at one minute after midnight Thursday and people were already lined up.
The state has a three-day waiting period so the earliest that weddings can take place is Sunday.

And as of today adults can legally have up to one ounce of pot and smoke it in the privacy of their home but not on the street, for while Initiative 502 made it legal to buy a small amount of marijuana and possess it, you can get a $100 ticket if you smoke it in public.

In Seattle the city attorney has given the police department the flexibility to decide how strict enforcement will be.

If you flaunt smoking in public you’re likely to get that $100 ticket. Otherwise SPD officers will give warnings to first timers and a reminder that all smoking of the infamous “loco weed”has to be done in private places.
