Rent-seeking story of the year

From the never-ending saga of our broken political system, this just in, from the state of Washington:

... a momentous initiative to legalize marijuana for all adults, which will be on the ballot this fall, is being opposed by the medical marijuana industry that the previous initiative created.

Ok put on your late-night stoner hat for this one. Today, out of the sort of boredom that can only result from long-term unemployment (hopefully to end soon) I decided for shits and giggles to watch youtube videos of potential travel destinations: Croatia, Estonia, Stockholm, Prague etc. Almost all of the cool ones were by RickSteves, who I had never heard of before. Then I read this article on pot legalization, and who is one of the bigger name proponents...Rick Steves!! Whoa dude...trippy. And I wasn't even stoned!!
