Pot Bill Passes in Washington

Washington lawmakers approve a bill to create licensed medical marijuana dispensaries. Seattle Senator Jeane Kohl Welles says there are several protections to keep the system in check: “qualified patients will only receive the arrest protection if they are registered.  Employers may establish drug-free workplaces.”  Critics say it's another step towards legalizing pot . Governor Christine Gregoire has threatened to veto the bill.
