Tomorrow It Will Be A “Post I-502 Seattle”

Starting tomorrow, as a result of Washington State voters passing I-502, it will no longer be a criminal offense under state law for adults to possess up to an ounce of marijuana for personal, private use. With this, the State will see the end of tens of thousands of arrests each year and the prosecutions that often come with them. These arrests have comprised the overwhelming majority of marijuana arrests. It’s certain that this shift in approach will save the public time and money.
