Marijuana initiative shreds the Cascade Curtain

Washington state has found an issue that makes mincemeat of the famed Cascade Curtain: marijuana.

Unlike many Northwest issues, the vote on Iniatitve-502 did not break along traditional east-west lines. Instead, weirdly, it broke along a north-south axis.

Voters across the northern half of the state seemed supported the pot initiative, while counties to the south (with the exception of Skamania) voted it down.

Hardly the typical Washington voting map.
