People smoke a joint during a demonstration organised by the CIRC (research and information center) and entitled "L'appel du 18 juin" (the call of June 18) to claim for the legalization of the use of marijuana and hashish, on June 18, 2011 at the Parc de la Villette in Paris. The "Appel du 18 Joint" uses a play on words to make their point, coming on the same day as France celebrates the "Appel du 18 Juin" or Call of 18 June, when Charles de Gaulle called for resistance against collaborationist Vichy government in 1940.

Looking for work? Here's a job description in Washington that piqued our interest:

Wanted: Someone with regulatory experience, a legal degree preferred, a background in statistics, and an intimate knowledge of how to grow and consume marijuana.

Last night, the Washington State Liquor Control Board held a meeting in hopes of finding such a person. The state recently voted to legalize recreational marijuana, and now they need a pot consultant to help develop the rules for this new industry.

Mikhail Carpenter with the state's Liquor Control Board was at the meeting last night. He joins the show with an update.
