Washington’s new attorney general has been busy in his first 100 days, including following up on two ballot measures Washington voters approved in November.
Bob Ferguson, with Gov. Jay Inslee, met with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to make clear Washington would be implementing Initiative 502, marijuana legalization. Last week, Ferguson’s office filed a lawsuit against a Richland florist for refusing to create floral arrangements for a same-sex wedding. Voters approved Referendum 74, which affirmed a law legalizing same-sex marriage.
He found an hour to stop by The Times later Thursday. We’ve got lots on our agenda to talk about besides the above, including Hanford’s leaking tank problem and longterm nuclear waste storage problem.

Does a Richland florist have the right to provide service to a gay man for years, then decide she won’t do business with him when he tells her he’s using the flowers in his wedding ceremony to another man?
Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson doesn’t think so. Discrimination is discrimination, and Washington treats the institution of marriage the same for all after the passage of Referendum 74 last November.
