Jay Inslee, left, signs a bill Friday, April 24, 2015 at the Capitol in Olympia, Wash., that overhauls Washington's medical marijuana market. The bill also creates a voluntary database of patients and cracks down on unregulated dispensary sales. Inslee has said the measure is needed now that the state's voter-approved recreational market is in place. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Nearly two decades after voters passed a medical marijuana law that often left police, prosecutors and even patients confused about what was allowed, Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bill Friday attempting to clean up that largely unregulated system and harmonize it with Washington's new market for recreational pot.

Assistant US trade representative for Europe and the Middle East Dan Mullaney, pictured here in Brussels on July 18, 2014, said he hopes "the EU will move forward in a way that respects our decades-old rules on trade"The United States criticized Friday the new European Union plan to allow member states to block genetically modified imports, following a new round of talks on the transatlantic free-trade pact. "It is hard to square this proposal with either EU long-standing internal obligations or their aspiration for a seamless internal market," said Dan Mullaney, the assistant US trade representative for Europe and the Middle East. Mullaney was speaking at a news conference following the ninth round of US-EU negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership held this week in New York. His remarks echoed US Trade Representative Michael Froman, who said the US was "very disappointed" by Wednesday's EU proposal to allow the 28 member states to individually decide whether to allow the import of genetically modified organisms or food, animal feed and other products made with them.
