My Week in Washington – A Legal Marijuana State

My Week in Washington – A Legal Marijuana State

By Tim Falletti, Tuesday Sept. 2, 2014 at 8:16 am

After landing in Portland, Oregon and grabbing our bags, we were promptly picked up by a car to make our journey to Washington. It was a two hour ride from Portland to our destination even though Washington is directly across the river and I could see it from my window. My first observance was that Washington was not, I repeat not, engulfed in a cloud of smoke. My second observation was that Washington’s state bird is the American goldfinch and not the Roadrunner because when I’m high, I like to watch cartoons.

When we got to the state line there wasn’t an ambassador or governor or anything telling us where the closest marijuana dispensary was. In fact, there were no billboards advertising the legal weed nor were there any whacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube men. There wasn’t a distinct smell of marijuana in the air and there wasn’t a bunch of Walking Dead stoners roaming the streets. I started to wonder if we had come to the right place.
