CANADIANS LOOK
TO WASHINGTON STATE
For that Loco Weed template

(MONROE, WA -- Don’t look now but there's a mess of Canadians up north looking down on Washington State licking their chops as they rub hands together with great joy and gaze up to the heavens.

They've been to the mountain top, looked over and saw unfolding before their eyes the promised land -- and it is us. And just what is this new rumbling warp in the fabric of space-time that has our neighbors up north all abuzz?

It's all about marijuana, aka Loco Weed, Mary Jane, a "bammy", an ace, chillums, blow stick, funk, giggle weed, ganja, gunga, grifa, gunny, Indiana hay, snop and on and on up to and including Wacky Terbacky, zombie weed and African bush.

Those with a fondness for the controversial weed up north in the land of the Loonie (slang term for the Canadian dollar coin which has a picture of a loon on it) see a day not far off where they'll be legally smokin' and tokin' those thick bammies as well as putting the stuff in jam to slap on toast, in salves and in sun screens, in fruity teas and in soft drinks to gurgle down on hot days.

And it's all thanks to the brave souls of Washington State who took on the establishment and finally pushed through the vote back in March to legalize the recreational act of blowin' a stick of funk now and then without the boys & girls in blue slapping on the handcuffs and reading you your Miranda rights.

FIRST WEED DEALERS IN WASHINGTON COMING SOON

The first weed dispensaries in Washington - could you ever have imagined a day when your dealer would be called a dispensary? - regulated by the state's liquor board, are expected to open in 2014.

Would be marijuana producers, processors and retailers will be able to apply for licenses starting Nov. 16. Only those who live in the state can be licensed to produce or sell pot legally in this new industry.

When it all gets up and running there are supposed to be 334 legal Dauna Juana (another slang term) stores in the state that will be selling a gram for about eight to ten bucks, 40% of which goes the state for taxes.

And all of this action down here in the Evergreen State has groups up in Canada who are working to decriminalize the possession of marijuana pretty jazzed because they figure if we can do it, they can do it too for our state has given them the template (just paint by the numbers) to achieve success.

“If two states in the U.S. have legalized cannabis, then you can't say it’s not possible in B.C. anymore,” said marijuana grower Muraco Kyashna-tocha in a report aired by the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) news show The National Monday Sept. 9 in Canada.

Kyashna-tocha currently grows her weed for medical users, but says she’s pondering a license to produce it under the new rules in Washington State. Regulators here expect about 40 tons of pot a year to be sold at retail.

UP NORTH A PETITION TO KEEP COPS FROM CRACKING DOWN ON WEED USERS

In British Columbia one group has already launched a petition aimed at stopping police from cracking down on pot smokers in the province. As of yesterday the group has 90 days to collect more than 350,000 signatures from across the province.

If the group is successful, it could trigger a referendum on a draft bill, entitled the "Sensible Policing Act," which would amend the Police Act to prohibit the use of provincial police resources to enforce simple possession-and-use laws for adults, according to CBC News in Canada.

And how will retail pot stores look in Washington State (and perhaps some day in Canada) when they get up and running?

Perhaps a bit like a store owned by John Davis.

Davis, a former property developer who sees a big future in the legal weed business, runs a medical marijuana dispensary in Seattle at present and currently sells product only to customers with a doctor’s note. He was interviewed for the report aired by The National on Monday.

His store sells everything from regular bud to marijuana sodas and chocolates, or as Davis says, "We have baked goods Ö we have sweets and savouries.”
