Legalizing Marijuana An Education

Legalizing Marijuana An Education

In this photo taken Thursday, April 4, 2013, Mike Steenhout, right, comptroller of Washington's Liquor Control Board, watches as Eden Labs founder Fritz Chess talks about a closed extraction system at his lab in Seattle. Spreadsheets, statistics and bean-counting are Steenhout's regular realm of expertise. Now, he's a weed guy. Washington's vote last fall to legalize marijuana for adults over 21 and set up a system of state-licensed pot growers, processors and retail stores left dozens of Liquor Control Board employees in the position of having to research and help regulate a substance that many knew little to nothing about. While the state has hired a Massachusetts firm to serve as its official marijuana consultant, the Liquor Control Board is also doing its own work--a cannabis crash-course. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
