Legalizers Square Off Against Medical Marijuana Advocates in Washington

Some patients complain that elements of an initiative put them at risk


This weekend, Hempfest will draw thousands of marijuana supporters to Seattle. Among them will be pot activists both for and against Washington Initiative 502.

The measure aims to legalize marijuana for recreational use. But some medical marijuana patients and providers say it would put them at risk and they're ramping up their opposition.
