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 effect.
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.
