King County Executive on Federal Government decision to allow Marijuana Legalization

Thursday, August 29, 2013

King County Executive Dow Constantine issued the following statement on today’s announcement by the Justice Department that the United States government will not seek to stop Washington from implementing I-502: 

“I am proud of Washington State for leading the way on national policy. We will regulate the production and sale of adult use marijuana in a way that reduces harm, protects youth, and profits legitimate, law-abiding, tax-paying businesses rather than criminals. 
Prohibition has clearly failed and, thanks to this decision by the federal government, we can now develop policies that respect the will of the people and work better for our communities.”
