The measure voters passed in 2012 directs tax revenue to the state Health Department for public health programs. But tax revenue isn’t coming in yet, and with sales about to start, the department scraped together $400,000 for a new radio and online advertisement campaign urging parents to talk to their kids about marijuana and visit www.learnaboutmarijuanawa.org. Dr. Leslie Walker, of Seattle Children’s, wishes the state had started soon after the measure passed.
