Last year, an elementary student took a loaded gun to school. Unfortunately, the boy dropped the bag in which the firearm had been placed, and it accidentally discharged. Another child was hurt seriously in the incident. Washington police initially filed criminal charges against the adult from whom the boy took the weapon.
In the state of Washington, it is legal for adults to possess small amounts of marijuana. Voters approved this change to the law that would prevent individuals from being jailed as a result of possessing the drug for recreational purposes. As the voting public approved this measure, some are wondering whether or not to further revise state laws regarding drug possession.
