Yeah, I thought the Washington law was best, followed by Colorado, then Oregon. I really wish that the Colorado law wasn't an amendment for one. I also like the symmetry of having funds go to treatment like you said (though I'm all for schools getting a boost too - it just doesn't seem as logical).
