Legal Weed in Washington Earns Even More Revenue Than Expected

Experts predict that Washington State is going to make even more money than originally estimated off the state’s legal recreational marijuana market.

The Economic and Revenue Forecast Council announced Wednesday that it expects the industry to bring in more than $694 million in tax revenue through mid-2019. In September, the council predicted that $636 million would be made in that time, showing an increase of $58 million in the estimate after just two months.

I wonder what it’ll be in January.

Woman Arrested for Checking 92 Lbs. of Marijuana in Her Luggage

A woman was arrested Sunday after checking 92 pounds of marijuana in her luggage at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor airport. She spread the load between three bags, two of which actually made it onto the plane before the third was discovered.

Well, two out of three ain’t so bad.

Unfortunately for Lauretta Blanton, 39, one bag stuffed to the gills with ganja was enough. The TSA called the Phoenix Police Department, who arrested Blanton and confiscated her haul. She is being charged with marijuana transportation, a felony.
