Mayor Says He Supports Pot Initiative

Posted by on Wed, Jun 22, 2011 at 5:00 PM

Mayor Mike McGinn supports the comprehensive tax and regulation pot initiative that was filed today, according to spokesman Aaron Pickus.

"As a candidate and as mayor he supported full legalization, and he supports this initiative," Pickus says. "Our office has reviewed the language the sponsors are proposing, and it looks like a good framework for legalizing marijuana for adults 21 and over." Good show, McGinn.

I've emailed all the members of the Seattle City Council to ask where they stand.

I just bought some chocolate brownie jello mix.

Will that make me crazy?

I've heard even thinking about ganja does that to you ...

FEAR! Must live in FEAR! Baaaaaaaaaa.

Uhhh, this is really bad law. Please do not support this abortion. Putting a diaper on a miscarriage does not make it a baby.

I'll take some cookies and a milkshake.

I had a cookie in university once. Nothing fun happened. It was one of a small stash that a dunk/druggie roommate who never went to class had hidden in the freezer of our 4 person university residence apartment at WWU. The cookie contained a small leaf on the top and that was it.

@3: Burgess supported the anti-prohibition efforts in the leg this year and signed on to a letter asking Gregoire not to veto the one bill that made it to her desk.

This bill is a great leap forward, but without a provision for a citizen to grow a cannabis plant or two at home, it is incomplete. At the rate some people use the plant, harvesting two plants every other month would be plenty. This bill does not legalize home gardens.

Beware the edibles!!!

But I hope that they've created a good bill. There really is no excuse since California has done the heavy lifting.

why no posts on the bill in congress to legalize it?

or did it die that quickly

Where does McGinn's potential opponent Burgess stand on legalization?
