As of midnight last night, personal and recreational use of marijuana became legal in Washington state. And with that legalization will come a market. A really big market. And former Microsoft product manager James Shively wants to take advantage of that market, offering high end weed in a retail environment.
Now that weed is legal in Washington state for everyone over the age of 21, the Seattle PD has some guidelines to follow for legal weed consumption. And no, if you’ve already had your weed taken, you can’t get it back. That’s police department break room weed now, bitch.
In 2009, Seattle police arrested a man named Daniel Lee, whom they suspected was a drug dealer.

Well it’s not like the leg needs to be a finely tuned machine like it’s a gazelle. A chair wheel does fine.
