Washington’s controversial I 502 passed 55% to 45%. This initiative removes criminal and civil penalties associated with marijuana possession. It also regulates pot production and distribution as well as subjects pot sales to a 25% tax.
The initiative took fire from some marijuana activists for its inclusion of a maximum threshold for THC blood concentration.
Washington voters have made their state at the forefront of marijuana law reform. Make no mistake, this is initiative effectively legalizes marijuana. Congratulations Washington!
