A new state proposal would allow the State liquor control board to sell and regulate cannabis. Supporters say it could raise $440 million in tax revenue per year — much-needed money, they say, in the face of a $5 billion deficit.
The bill has stalled in committee, but supporters held a panel yesterday to drum up more support.
John McKay was part of the panel of officials invited by Democratic Rep. Mary Lou Dickerson of Seattle to speak in favor of a marijuana legalization bill at a news conference Wednesday.
Dickerson wants to build momentum ahead of Thursday’s revenue forecast, which many predict will show the deficit to be even bigger than previously thought.
