According to studies performed by the Office of Applied Studies, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2003 and 2004, the total number of people ages 12 and older in the state of Washington who used marijuana in the past year is 676,000.

Marijuana use in the state of Washington was legalized in January of 2013. People are able to purchase pot from a state-licensed store and it is taxed. One of the reasons besides legalizing it for the terminally ill is because of the problems with synthetic marijuana which also goes by names as K2, Aroma, Eclipse, Black Mamba, Dream and Blaze. It's made in underground labs and there is no telling of what kinds of chemicals it is made with. Synthetic marijuana is very harmful especially in kids, teens and young adults because their brains are still developing and it causes cognitive and memory problems as well as psychosis, heart attacks and death. According to SAMHSA 75% of people brought in to the ER were kids from 12-19 yrs old.
