2012 is shaping up to be a crazy year in pot reform, two states are trying to legalize some aspects of Marijuana use which have never been successfully legalized to this extent in the US before. Those states are Washington with Initiative 502 also known as I-502 and Colorado with Amendment 64. This is obviously the first time since the Failed Proposition 19 in California (which only failed by 3.5%!) that this is being attempted. With so many states passing more medical marijuana laws every year, each recreational ballot becomes more interesting. On this episode we explore one of these November 2012 Ballots; Initiative 502! Also known as i-502. This is a rather conservative initiative that sets several rules and regulations in place, so I consider it to be more of a 'decriminalization' initiative, rather than an all out legalization. However, it is an important step forward!
