The good news just keeps rolling in! Washington State media outlets are calling a victory for I-502, as are activists. That makes 2! The feds are going to have their hands full if they try to interfere with democracy. Below is the reaction from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition:
Not one but two states have voted to legalize marijuana tonight! Washington just joined Colorado in making history!
You know LEAP has something to say about it. Here’s a reaction from LEAP speaker and former Seattle police Chief Norm Stamper:
“With these two victories tonight in Colorado and Washington, the movement for drug policy reform has never been stronger. These votes will embolden leaders of countries in Latin America and elsewhere who have wanted to change their drug policies but haven’t because of pressure from the U.S. government. As more and more states follow the example set here tonight, the federal government will have little choice but to accept the will of the people both here and abroad. Expect to see previously silent legalization supporters around the globe seizing the momentum created by tonight’s historic victories.”
