Revised Inhalant Laws in Everett, Washington

From the Snohomish County Tribune in Washington:

The Everett City Council has discussed updating their inhalant related laws. The assistant city attorney mentioned that “more chemicals are being added so the city can align its law with state standards.”

The article continues, “proposed changes would tweak the name of the law to cover “toxic fumes” and abusers would be still charged with a misdemeanor and up to 30 days in jail and/or up to a $100 fine. The amended ordinance reduces the fine by $900. Additionally, people cannot own substances that release toxic fumes or vapors or distribute them if they or the recipient intends to inhale them.”
