Medical Marijuana Group Disbands Over Legalization Opposition

Muddled message resulted in very public firing of Washington group's press secretary


It's been an interesting week in the fight against Washington's Initiative 502—sponsored by New Approach Washington and designed to legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana in our state. Perhaps that's to be expected when the bulk of the vigor against the initiative is coming from pot proponents. Maybe it's a sign we've come a long way if the prominent argument regarding Washington's pot legalization initiative is between two sides that, at least ostensibly, support medical marijuana patients. Or maybe it's simply yet another example of what a strange and convoluted argument it's become.
