The entire world is watching how marijuana legalization is implemented in Washington State. It’s actually become a rallying cry for marijuana prohibitionists in Oregon that ‘we need to wait to see how things unfold in Washington before we pursue marijuana legalization in Oregon.’ I don’t think there’s anything to wait for, considering innocent people are having their lives ruined in states where marijuana is not legal, despite the fact that consuming marijuana is virtually harmless. Below is a message from Washington NORML, along with a link to the timeline:
Dear I-502 Stakeholders,
The Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) today adopted its official timeline for implementing I-502. This replaces the tentative timeline that has been posted on our website since December.
This official timeline is based on input from the public forums, our research, and all that we’ve learned in the months since the November election. The WSLCB is on track to meet the December 1 deadline required by I-502.
