How? That is the dominant question on the minds of the Autoblog staff after reading this astonishing tale out of Rhode Island.

Consider our buzz harshed. Legal pot use in Washington and Colorado has had a number of benefits – the Highest State has seen a 2.5-percent drop in violent crime and a big bump in tax revenues ($10 million during the first third of 2014). Washington, meanwhile, is expecting a $190-million increase in tax revenues over the next few years.
