This week on Century of Lies: New Washington State Drug Laws Post-Blake.

Drug possession laws in Washington state were invalidated in 2021 by a state supreme court decision in the case of State v Blake. The legislature moved quickly to put some laws back in place but the measures they enacted expire on July 1, 2023.
