Retiring LCB chairwoman enjoying her marijuana brownies after knee surgery

We asked Sharon Foster if retiring as chairwoman of the Liquor Control Board offered her new opportunities. She recently had knee-replacement surgery.

“For marijuana use?” she replied. “My physical therapist said to me the other day, ‘Sharon, have you been using any of that alternate product?’ And I looked at her and said, ‘You know — I hadn’t thought about that.’ And I said, ‘Maybe I should be, for my knee …’ ”

Foster wasn’t kidding.

She told the Tacoma News-Tribune she’s been enjoying marijuana brownies as dessert lately.

“By the time I went to bed, which was maybe an hour and a half or two hours after I ate this brownie — piece of brownie — I didn’t feel anything,” Foster told the News-Tribune.

“So all I know is, I was relaxed enough to go to sleep. So if I was high, I don’t know it.”
