Washington Governor: 'I Can Honestly Say We’ve Got The Best Weed In America'

On last Friday's 420 edition of 'Real Time with Bill Maher,' Washington Governor Jay Inslee (D) took a moment to brag about the quality of marijuana grown in his home state.

'I can honestly say, we’ve got the best weed in the United States of America,' Inslee (D) said. 'It’s a growing industry, and well-regulated.'

And being the first of only a handful of US states to legalize recreation marijuana Inslee has a lot to brag about.

Of course, Inslee isn't the only politician talking up the cannabis in their state. Earlier this month California congressperson Ted Lieu made some bold claims about weed from his state too.

But, with incoming legalization in Massachusetts and the whole of Canada, Inslee and Lieu may be in for some competition.

Check out Inslee's comments in the video above.


In the old days, weed "branding" was defined by plastic baggies, pot leaf imagery, tie-dye, and in some cases, imagery of conventionally hot girls in bikinis or booty shorts. The messages back then revolved around weed as a stereotypically male stoner pastime, whilst alienating women, or those who didn't appreciate the strip club aesthetic in connection to their medicinal or recreational products. But in recent years, and especially in legal states, this has all begun to change.
