A Panel Debate About Washington State's Marijuana Legalization Initiative
Don E. Wirtshafter moderates the most anticipated panel of Seattle Hempfest 2012. Initiative 502 is on the Washington State ballot and would legalize personal possession of marijuana, with state-licensed cultivation for commercial stores. It also institutes a new per se DUID at 5ng of active THC per milliliter of blood, which is an unscientific standard for determining driver impairment.
