OLYMPIA, Wash. -

A new poll shows that the Democratic candidates for president and governor hold strong leads in Washington state, though neither is above 50 percent.
    
The latest survey by independent pollster Stuart Elway was released Monday. It shows Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton with a double digit lead over Republican Donald Trump in Washington, 43 percent to 24 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson received 7 percent and Green Party Candidate Jill Stein got 4 percent. Sixteen percent of Washington voters said they were undecided and six percent said they may not vote for president at all.
    
In the state's gubernatorial race, the numbers for the race between Democratic incumbent Jay Inslee and Republican challenger Bill Bryant remained exactly the same since an Elway poll in April, with Inslee still leading 48 percent to 36 percent.

    MONTREAL (AP) - Canada's decision to legalize marijuana could influence other countries as they mull whether to end their own bans on the drug.    Drug law reform advocates say the nation's status as a major economy and a good international partner lends additional weight to its decision. Legal sales began Wednesday as more than 110 legal pot shops opened across Canada.
