(Olympia, WA)  --  The Washington State Department of Corrections will reportedly allow parolees in Washington to smoke marijuana.  KING-5 reports the policy, which will take effect next week, will allow about 14-thousand parolees to consume pot under the voter-approved initiative legalizing recreational marijuana use.  DOC assistant secretary Annmarie Aylward says the policy means offenders won't be routinely tested for THC, the component in marijuana that produces the desired high.  The department says while it's not endorsing the use of marijuana, it's aligning with state law that allows adult citizens to use pot on a recreational basis.
