Don’t Forget to Pray Before Flouting State Law Kennewick City Council!

They decided to flout state law and forbid the sale of marijuana in the city while councilman John Trumbo proposed the body begin prayers. A Supreme Court ruling recently said it was permissible and Trumbo said it would "create the proper attitude and sense of seriousness." Stuff like this is embarrassing to me.
