Sorry you have such a poor opinion of Washington state and JWN. I find it amusing and can only add that I have lived in both Texas and Washington, so I have been able to compare the two - which of course explains why I am happy to be living in Washington State.
Both Colorado and Washington passed ligalization of marijuna, that is what happenes when you have to many Californians relocating there. BTW, I also lived in Texas for a while. Texas is more like a country within a country, you either love it or hate it.
