Drug Task Force Head Reflects on Marijuana Legalization

December 06, 2012


As of today, marijuana is legal in Washington state. The liquor control

board still has almost a year to set up the state monitored system for growing and selling the drug. But adults 21

and over can now legally possess up to an ounce of marijuana, and a more specific DUI provision also is now in


       The Columbia River Drug Task Force combats drug dealers in the valley. So

KOHO’s Isaac Kaplan-Woolner wanted to find out what their top brass, Sgt. Chris Foreman thinks of the

change in the law.

       The State Liquor Control Board has until December 1st 2013 to

figure out the system that would legally grow, distribute, sell, and tax marijuana. And the federal government

could still crack down and preempt WA state law.
