Marijuana fans celebrate decriminalisation in Washington state

 
On the stroke of midnight Thursday, marijuana smokers toked up under Seattle’s iconic Space Needle to celebrate the drug’s decriminalisation in the state of Washington. As of Thursday, anyone over the age of 21 can legally carry up to one ounce of marijuana, but is not allowed to smoke it in public. This didn’t deter Seattle’s celebrants, but luckily for them, no police showed up to kill their buzz.

Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this

its field. Fantastic blog!
