    The Washington Marijuana Legalization and Regulation, Initiative 502, will appear on the November 6, 2012 statewide ballot in Washington as an Initiatives to the Legislature.The proposed measure would legalize the production, possession, delivery and distribution of marijuana. The initiative would regulate the sale of small amounts of marijuana to people 21 and older. According to reports, marijuana grow farms and food processors would be licensed by the Washington State Liquor Control Board.
    Additionally, the measure would make it illegal for a motorist to have more than 5 nanograms of THC (an active ingredient of marijuana) per milliliter of blood in their system.
    The initiative is supported by a group called New Approach Washington. It is sponsored by John McKay, former U.S. Attorney, according to the filed petition. Additional sponsors include: Kim Marie Thorburn MD, Peter Holmes, Rick Steves, Robert Wood MD, Roger Roffman and Salvador Mungia.
    On January 27, 2012 the Washington Secretary of State's office verified that supporters had collected sufficient signatures to qualify the measure for the statewide ballot. Since the measure is an Initiatives to the Legislature, it was first sent to the Washington State Legislature for consideration. The legislature took no action, leaving the measure to be sent directly to the statewide ballot for a vote.[SUP]

    There is a thread in the Washington State forums, and it is nearly unanimous that we are all opposed to this bill.

    Business is business and people should expect the government will step in where big money is made. Yes the regulations they have are bull but I am regulated and made to pay for my other licenses like my commercial fishing license. I always knew they would get there fingers in the marijuana trade as like any other trade in the US. I hope to see marijuana legal across the globe one day. I hope one day its so legal I can pick me up a pack of joints at the corner store.

    I wouldn't trust weed sold from the corner store.

    When will we know if it's been approved or not?
    Personally, I'd rather wait for a better one to come along.
