Cannabis is not about the children

Cannabis can only legally be purchased by those 21 and over — that is adults.

Regarding Proposition 1, the cons on the con committee continue to try to misdirect and deflect Federal Wayan’s attention from the measure’s intent.

It is not about children; cannabis can only legally be purchased by those 21 and over — that is adults. It is about allowing those adults to purchase within the city limits and have Federal Way receive the revenue from those purchases instead of other taxing jurisdictions.

Access is an issue, why should the dude who needs his Viagra be able to get it at 100-plus stores but not medically prescribed cannabis?
