Legalizing Marijuana - December 9, 2011

December 10, 2011

Initiative 502 would legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana in Washington state. It is backed by former U.S. Attorney John McKay, the ACLU, and a former Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Seattle. In this edition, we examine the initiative and its chances of passage by Washington voters in 2012. We also heard from law enforcement and others concerned about the initiative and its potential social and legal impact.
