Some of you seem to be daft about the recent legal weed laws. You think that weed is now legal in Colorado, but not yet in Washington. That's incorrect. Weed has been legal in Washington since December of 2012. It just hasn't been legal to grow it or sell it. It's been perfectly legal though to buy it (up to an ounce), to possess it (up to an ounce), and to use it privately. In other words, on the buyer/user/possessor end, it has been legal for over a year now.

Growing it and selling it is almost also legal, with the right licensing, and the shops should be open in about two months. But to be clear, you're wrong about weed not being legal in Washington. On the user's end, there has been no legal liability since 2012.
