Newly Filed Initiative Wants to Make Sure Officials Don’t Ignore State Marijuana Law

According to the Secretary of State’s office, an Anacortes man - Jared Allaway - has filed an initiative with the State Elections Division that, according to the bill’s wording, seeks to make it “a misdemeanor for any employee or agent of the state of Washington to provide any information about marijuana or cannabis-related activities to any federal government employee or agency for furtherance of any federal criminal or civil investigation that would not also be a criminal violation for persons over twenty-one years of age under the laws of Washington state.”
