OREGON–(ENEWSPF)–November 13, 2012. It’s a great time to be living in King and Pierce Counties in Washington State. More than 220 misdemeanor marijuana possession cases are being dropped in response to the passage of I-502. Not only are current cases being dropped, but law enforcement in those counties will be treating the law as if I-502 was already implemented going forward.
“The people have spoken through this initiative,” said Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist. “And as a practical matter, I don’t think you could sell a simple marijuana case to a jury after this initiative passed.”
