Gregoire meets with Deputy AG on marijuana issue

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington state Gov. Chris Gregoire will meet with Deputy Attorney General James Cole this morning to discuss the state’s recent passage of a measure to legalize and tax the sale of marijuana for recreational use. Initiative 502 passed with 55 percent of the vote last week. The measure decriminalizes the possession of up to an ounce of marijuana beginning Dec. 6, but the state has a year to come up with rules governing the growing, processing and labeling of pot before sales to adults over 21 can begin. Colorado also passed a measure legalizing the drug. Curtis said Gregoire wanted to meet with federal officials because “we want direction from them.”
