I-502


Snohomish voted in favor of pot

Regarding the June 5 letter, “Snohomish must ban pot business”: The writer seems unclear on the initiative process. City of Snohomish voters overwhelmingly (8 of 10 precincts) helped pass Initiative 502.
The president and U.S. attorney general gave their blessings last August to go ahead with the marijuana “experiment” in Washington and Colorado. Apparently the writer believes the status quo — continuing the illegal sale of marijuana, targeting the teenagers in his community. The unscrupulous drug cartels love to prey on teenagers with their lucrative black market marijuana of dubious quality and safety. (Who knows what chemicals they add to it?)
I-502 requires a safe, legal, regulated sale to adults only, with profits going to treatment, education and enforcement against sales to minors.
The writer states that because he shops and patronizes stores in other cities and not necessarily Snohomish, other citizens should do the same. (Drive to Lake Stevens or Everett to purchase legal marijuana). How hypocritical.
