Washington State voters are heading to the polls to vote on proposition I-502 in November. I-502 is a law that would allow for the legalization of marijuana in that state for recreational uses. Washington State already has a medicinal marijuana law on the books. This one would legalize pot for fun. And they are not the only state to have such a law up for consideration on the November ballot. Colorado, and Oregon have the same initiative in play. To promote passage of the law, last Friday Seattle was home to Hempfest, the largest rally in the country for the legalization of marijuana. Hempfest is in its 21st year. Over 40,000 people attended this event in a show of support for I-502. If the law passes, Washington would allow sales of up to an ounce of dried marijuana at state-licensed stores and could bring the state nearly $2 billion in tax revenue over the next five years, if the federal government doesn’t try to block the law from taking effect. Pot remains illegal under federal law. Washington’s measure, Initiative 502, also would prevent nearly 10,000 marijuana possession arrests every year in the state, proponents say.
