Reader Poll Results: Would You Vote For Washington’s I-502?

Last month we ran a poll on our site (it was open for 9 days), asking people their thoughts on Washington’s I-502 marijuana law reform measure.While controversy seems to surround the measure, some 77% of respondents to our poll said they would vote “yes” on I-502 if they lived in Washington or if the same measure was proposed in their state. Fifteen percent said they would vote “no” while 8% were undecided.
Everyone agrees that I-502 has flaws. Whether the pros of the measure outweigh the cons is where the controversy ensues. Among our readers at least, it seems like I-502 is worth passing. Whether it will or not depends on many factors. But if history holds a lesson for us, we can look back to California’s Prop 19 and see what infighting among the cannabis community did to that measure.
If anything, the infighting in Washington is ramping up to another level as we approach election day in November. The vote on I-502 will be among several very interesting ones that day.
