Washington State is banning the use of the word “marijuana” in state law, citing its historically racist connotations.

“The term ‘marijuana’ itself is pejorative and racist,” Democratic state representative Melanie Morgan said after the bill was introduced in January 2021. “As recreational marijuana use became more popular, it was negatively associated with Mexican immigrants.” She, along with other Washington Democrats and drug legalization activists, has blamed marijuana criminalization for creating the negative association, alleging the word “was used as a racist terminology to lock up black and brown people,” according to KIRO 7 News, a CBS affiliate.

The article goes on to state the following:

House Bill 1210, which passed the state House and Senate in February, will replace the term with the word “cannabis” throughout Washington’s legal code. Gov. Jay Inslee (D.) signed the bill into law in March, but it won’t take effect until June.


Fox News anchor Jesse Watters spoke out on the story, noting the irony that the first state to legalize marijuana is now banning the word.

    Or any other spanish word .
    Liberalism is deffenitly a cry of ignorance.

  2. I wonder when they’ll ban the word racist? After all, it really is the ONLY word that is racist! ALL of the other words? Not so much, because WORDS CANNOT BE RACIST! Only people can be racist. And, racism isn’t hereditary! It is a behavior that is learned. It isn’t restricted by race!

  3. If their state reps think this is what is important in a state that is second only to California in being garbage states with homeless, stealing, no bail, etc. wake up
