Kitsap County is joining a growing list of counties in dumping cases vs. defendants charged with marijuana possession

Kitsap County is joining a growing list of counties in dumping cases against defendants charged solely with marijuana possession.

Kitsap County Prosecutor Russ Hauge doesn't believe juries will convict pot possession defendants after voters approved initiative 502, which will legalize up to an ounce of marijuana for adults 21 and older on Dec. 6.

Hauge estimates that between 20 and 100 cases will be dropped, some of them in the form of arrest warrants for those who failed to show up for court on charges.

There's no "R" in Washington, mmkay?

This is one step in the right direction, but it's still not enough. Time to start talking about hemp production.

We need to hit the elite WHERE IT COUNTS: energy.

Veterans for Ron Paul

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

kentucky is seeing the way for hemp production

Our ag commissioner is seeing it as his top priority while in office.

initiative 502 was the only thing that really got me to vote

on November 6th. After the presidential caucuses and how we were treated in Florida, I could not get too excited about voting for Gary Johnson or even writing in Ron Paul, since I knew it would not really change anything. But when I saw this initiative had a good chance of passing, it really made a difference. My husband and I voted and I stayed up late watching the election results.

We already had medical marijuana in WA for a few years now, and while the feds don't like it, WA has been doing a pretty good job in holding our own.

Since most of the people who voted for 502 are young libs, I hope this wakes them up to what is so wrong with the federal government control and the UN.

Who would have thought..

Who would have thought that after a bitter campaign that the beginning of change in this country would have come in such a pretty green package. I figured nothing would change as i sat at home depressed on election night when the results rolled in. It really seemed like the population would never wake up. Then Washington and Colorado made the largest change in anti-government propaganda in decades. For all of you who still think cannabis is a non issue, this is the largest change in public opinion that has actually been carried out and won since alcohol prohibition, and we all know how that ended. We will fight back our corrupt rulers with swords made of hemp. Every great story begins with a unlikely hero. Light up for freedom, I know I am.

My home town...

Is in Kitsap County (Port Orchard). This makes me proud!

Some good news

in a world of bad news.

sovereign

Very good find Tom, the same is true for Pierce and King

Counties. May WA state hold up the liberty torch. So many think we are a liberal/democratic state...I disagree, we are a liberty state or so I shall choose to believe!

I see this fight (to legalize cannabis)

Right now as the one that is the most important front in the battle against the enemy -- and the one that wakes up the most people.
