Proponents of an initiative to ban safe injection sites are alleging the King County department of health actively worked to hamper their efforts and used public funds to do it, violating state law.

‘Safe injection sites’ are not the answer to our heroin problem | Guest Editorial | Redmond Reporter
I’ve seen the future of opioids. It’s Vancouver, B.C. and it’s not pretty. King County Executive Dow Constantine and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray have a proposal to open two so-called “safe injection sites” to save people from certain slow or sudden death from abusing heroin, meth and other illicit drugs.
The ballot measure is as simply worded as an initiative could be:
Shall supervised drug consumption sites for Schedule I controlled substances (RCW 69.50.204), including heroin but excluding marijuana, be unlawful in King County?”
Electing an openly socialist activist to the Seattle City Council was one thing, but now Seattle has socialized city council elections. The so-called “democracy vouchers” are a full-employment act for less-than-mediocre program managers who aspire to political office. These individuals would otherwise be pumping gas in Oregon, but instead they’re getting funds to spout their fringy political ideas. You can thank the passage of Initiative 122 for this and the newly-named Ethics and Elections Commission for making all this fun possible.
The complexity of redeeming a voucher is absolutely mind-numbing and the most a candidate can receive from an individual is $100. Read more

Gov. Jay Inslee on Thursday morning signed an executive order declaring Washington a “welcoming jurisdiction,” spelling out that state resources won’t be used to support federal immigration efforts, except where required by law.
[Ed.: It’s something we’d always suspected, but now this officially makes Gov. Jay Inslee a complete moron. What happened to the rule of law Governor?
Governor, we’d like to see you try to immigrate to another country illegally and see how you’re treated. It would get you out of our hair and show you that the sensible things President Trump is undertaking – which should have been done in previous administrations – is right, prudent and just.
Why, in a country where we can’t pay our bills the way it is, should those who come here illegally be left to subsist in the margins, live in shanty towns, take from our social services when they get sick and not pay into the systems the way taxpaying citizens and legal immigrants do? This is why people voted for Trump. They’re tired of falling wages, rampant property crime and drug-addled homeless youth sleeping in public places and nobody willing to take a stand against it. Granted these are not necessarily all immigrant-related, but they are all things the Democrat Party is actively supporting or abetting. You are an absolute disgrace!]
