Seattle Hempfest 2012: The Great Debate Over Washington State Legalization Initiative 502

POT TV – YES or NO on Washington State legalization Initiative 502? That was the question discussed during the most anticipated panel at Seattle Hempfest 2012.


From Russ Belville on YouTube:

“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.
