Tarrant County's First Retail Marijuana Store Did Not Open Yesterday

Reading my old hometown zone's news online this morning I learned the county I lived in in Washington, Skagit, has opened its first retail marijuana store, in the little town of Conway.

Meanwhile in the state I am currently in, Texas, there are no retail marijuana stores open anywhere.

And a 19 year old Texan named Jacob Lavoro is currently in extreme jeopardy, facing a life sentence, because he baked some brownies which used marijuana as an ingredient.

Something seems way out of whack when in one part of America you can open a store to sell marijuana, while in another part of America you can be arrested and put in prison for the rest of your life for baking special brownies.
