We need a new approach to marijuana.

Young people have easy access since, of course, drug dealers don’t check IDs.

Initiative 502 brings marijuana under tight control.

Maintains strict penalties for selling to minors.

And raises millions for prevention and education.

With 502,

We’ll have more resources for us.

Less profit for the drug cartels.

And police will have more time to focus on violent crime instead.

Yes on 502.

It’s just common sense.

As the former chief federal prosecutor, I enforced our marijuana laws.

I’ve come to believe they don’t work.

Filling our courts and jails has failed to reduce marijuana use.

And drug cartels are pocketing all the profits.

It’s time for a new approach.

Initiative 502 brings marijuana under tight regulatory control.

Generates new revenue for education and prevention.

And if we pass 502, we’ll have more resources to go after violent crime instead.

Yes. On 502.

I don’t like it personally, but it’s time for a conversation about legalizing marijuana.

It’s a multi-million dollar industry in Washington State and we get no benefit.[1]

What if we regulate it?

Have background checks for retailers, stiff penalties for selling to minors.

We could tax it to fund schools and health care.[2]

Free up police to go after violent crime instead.[3]

And we would control the money, not the gangs.

Let’s talk about a new approach.

Legalizing and regulating marijuana.



[1] See, Washington State Office of Financial Management, Fiscal Note for Initiative 502 (2012).  Currently, tax is rarely paid by individuals selling marijuana in Washington, with the exception of a small number of medical marijuana dispensaries.
