Editorial: Initiative 502 brings marijuana trade out of the shadows

Opponents of Initiative 502 are making the argument that they don’t want more people to smoke marijuana. Especially, not more teenagers. The argument is simple and wrong.

People already smoke marijuana. Teenagers smoke it. The law prohibits it and they do it.

Initiative 502 is about licensing, taxing and regulating marijuana for adults. It is about taking it out of the shadows, out of the hands of gangs and cartels, and into the hands of people who can be watched. People who have a business address. People who file tax returns.
