Allow for private sales of organs, marrow, tissue, etc.

I suggest you...Allow for the sale of organs, marrow, etc. Provided removal and installation were both done in WA State by WA State licensed physicians, such a proposal could easily withstand a 10th Amendment challenge. Sales tax would naturally be charged; and quality of health care in our state would arguably improve as more people donate organs and the free market equilibrium removes doubt about transplant costs from ...more »

Eliminate the Apple Health Care Program

Eliminate the Apple Health Care program. A family of four making $66,150.00 a year pays no more than $60 a month in premiums. A family of 6 making $88,590.00 a year pays no more than $60 a month in premiums. If you make this kind of money you can afford to purchase healthcare thru your employer the state should not subsidize these families. If you are low income there are many other programs availabe such as medicaid. ...more »

More communtiy service/less jail time for nonviolent offenders.

Basically it’s counterproductive to have someone just sit in a jail cell for selling pot, while they could be heavily engaged in helping ...more »

Start Highschool 1/2 to 1 hour later in the morning.

Move school starting time up a half hour to a hour. Studies have shown that teens at this time of human development have their internal clocks shift forward (naturally stay up later in the evening) but still need the same amount of sleep, so starting the classes even a half hour later would be of great help. This will improve attendance (lower rates of kids saying there sick when they are just actually tired) and higher ...more »

Canadian Prescriptions available to all

Prescriptions drugs are more expensive here than in Canada. Why is this? We are bordering Canada after all. I believe the state should allow shipments of Canadian prescription drugs to be shipped to Washingtonians. To help the state budget shortfall we could put an extra tax on Canadian drugs so that they are more in line with U.S. prices (but please, not as high as that would defeat the purpose). You would be helping ...more »
