It was a busy weekend on the pot scene and for our coverage in The Seattle Times.
In Seattle’s Central District, protesters voiced their objections to Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop, which opened last week. About 150 churchgoers shouted “shut it down” outside the store, which was the second state-licensed retail pot store in Seattle.
Meanwhile, our Oregon correspondent, Hal Bernton, took a look at the effort to legalize marijuana in the state. The initiative calls for lower taxes on pot than in Washington and would allow home grow. Oregonians would also be able to possess eight ounces of pot at home.
