(Olympia, WA)  --  Some Washington state lawmakers want to explore the idea of using marijuana to help fund public education in the state.  The discussion surrounds using revenue generated by sales of legal marijuana to help pay for K-through-12 schools.  Clark County Republican Senator Ann Rivers and Democratic Senator Christine Rolfes of Bainbridge Island both say they're open to the idea.  Governor Jay Inslee tells KING-5 he's not opposed to using pot tax revenue to benefit schools, but also says it wouldn't come close to solving the education-funding problem.
