I have long believed that the best decisions of government are those made on as local a basis as possible whether by vote of the people or their representatives.
In the case of the legalization of marijuana, Washington voters decided to make it legal and regulated, although federal law says otherwise. If the voters or representatives of Washington want to legalize it on a local basis, I support that decision.
If, however, the voters or representatives of more local jurisdictions, say for instance, counties and municipalities want to restrict its legalization in their area, I support that as well.
The best decisions of government are those made on as local a basis as possible and I applaud Attorney General Bob Ferguson for his recent position on this issue.
