Washington State currently allows the use of medical marijuana, but some say we should go further. Initiative 502 seeks to legalize the sale and possession of marijuana for adults over the age of 21. Such a sweeping change raises a number of questions about public safety, law enforcement, potential tax revenue, use of marijuana among minors, and federal marijuana legislation. Please join our panel of advocates, campaigns representatives and experts as you decide how to vote on I-502. There will be multiple opportunities to have your questions answered as we discuss and debate this initiative.
