Marijuana Pioneers Relaxing Rules


In this photo taken Thursday, March 28, 2019, employees Dan Giroux, left, and Dustin Barrington ring up
sales for customers at a marijuana shop in Seattle. When Washington and Colorado launched their
pioneering marijuana industries in the face of U.S. government prohibition, they imposed strict rules in
hopes of keeping the U.S. Justice Department at bay. Five years later, federal authorities have stayed
away, but the industry says it has been stifled by over-regulation. Lawmakers in both states have heard
the complaints and are moving to ease the rules.
