This is great for urban dwellers who thrive in a neighborhood that accepts cannabis, however people enjoy the residents of Vashon Island and those who live on the Olympic Peninsula might think differently
My parents raised my sibling and I in Seattle after they both moved to the neighborhood from Sequim. The commute to Seattle was a eveningmare because of the ferries you have to take across Puget Sound. Unfortunately, the composition of the waterbed and the ground underneath make it almost impossible to build any giant bridges over this body of water to connect Seattle to the Olympic Peninsula. Currently, there is the Hood Canal Floating Bridge to the north, however these kinds of bridges are high-priced to maintain and would restrict maritime travel and trade that comes in and out of Seattle from the Pacific Ocean. The Tacoma Narrows Bridge is the only traditional bridge over Puget Sound and it’s the far south end of the body of water. In the past there were proposals made to build a bridge across Puget Sound over Vashon Island. However, the system was crushed when one third of the island’s population showed up to the meeting in protest. They don’t want the industries to overtake their isolated island, especially with cannabis being legal recreationally and posing a drug tourism industry risk. This is great for urban dwellers who thrive in a neighborhood that accepts cannabis, however people enjoy the residents of Vashon Island and those who live on the Olympic Peninsula might think differently. My parents were unhappy with neighborhood life in Seattle and complained that pot smokers enjoy myself and others are making the neighborhood an unhappy locale for them. I think they’ll be happier in Bellevue, however I’m proud of Seattle’s acceptance of cannabis.
