Revising I-502 to better define THC levels in marijuana products

Brownies that were confiscated by
Seattle Police earlier this month.
Brownies and other marijuana
products allegedly were sold
to Seattle middle and high school
students from a private home.
Earlier this week, the Washington Legislature delivered to Governor Inslee a bill that would change the definition of THC concentration as it was outlined in I-502.  The definition included in the initiative made it difficult for prosecutors to make marijuana-related charges stick.

Such was the concern of the King County Prosecuting Attorney when looking to prove in court that a Seattle man was selling marijuana brownies to children.

The House Government Accountability and Oversight Committee held a public hearing about the issue on April 25.
