Sunday Memo: New pot law and your job … wet, windy … Sounders’ tall order

Can after-hours marijuana use after Dec. 6 get you in trouble at work? Pot will be legal starting Dec. 6, but the new voter-approved law does not affect employers’ right to drug test their workers.  Show up with marijuana in your system — even residual amounts from a few weeks back — and there’s no guarantee your boss will look the other way. Reporter Jonathan Martin explains what you might want to know before lighting smoking that legal joint.

Cougars fall to Arizona State:  Losing is no fun. Bud Withers describes just how un-fun the Washington State football season has become. It’s like, he says, the time he “locked keys inside a rental car with the engine running.”

Huskies bash Colorado: QB Keith Price tied a school record for touchdown passes. Bob Condotta writes about the Huskies’ second-half march to victory.
