Marijuana Legal in Washington; Portland PD Rubs it In

Tomorrow possession of less than an ounce of marijuana becomes legal under Washington's state statutes. The Seattle PD created "Marijwhatnow?" the best press release in the history of police press releases by way of explaining the ins and outs of the new law, and now it's the Portland PD's turn to help the Oregon populace:

Much like existing fireworks laws, what is legal in Washington is not legal in Oregon, In other words, if it goes high in the air or gets you high, you should probably use it in the Evergreen State.

Not bad, PDXPD, not bad. The rest is pretty straightforward and factual, so check it out if you're considering some "agricultural tourism" up north.

Maybe Oregon should just go ahead and legalize marijuana for the sake of fun in press releases. I think the EPD's spokesfolks Melinda McLaughlin and Jenna McCulley are totally up for a good ol' press release challenge.
