Gov. Inslee discusses marijuana legalization with U.S. attorney general

Why question state law?

Why does Gov. Inslee feel the need to “converse” with the U.S. attorney general regarding marijuana [“Inslee encouraged by marijuana talk with feds,” page one, Jan. 23]?

Why isn’t he “moving forward”?

Or is the governor saying that he isn’t “convinced” that the people of Washington voted to legalize?

If the will of the people can be suborned by the feds, and their own governor, why then have state elections?

The last governor, Chris Gregoire, did the same thing by blocking some provisions of the marijuana law.

Is this not governing backward?

Is this democracy?

--Bob Miller, Seattle
