I came across a great poster titled Marijuana 101 when I took my family to a park on Mercer Island last weekend. The poster lists basic Washington State marijuana law in an easy to understand manner that everyone should have knowledge of. Here is the information:
Marijuana is illegal in Washington for anyone under 21.
Frequent marijuana use can lead to addiction (1 in 6 youth, 1 in 9 adults).
It is illegal to use marijuana in public.
It is illegal to gift or share marijuana.
It is a felony to provide marijuana to a minor.
Driving under the influence (DUI) of marijuana is a crime.
Many employers still drug test for marijuana.
It is illegal to purchase marijuana until licensed stores open in December 2013 with the passing of Initiative 502.
Marijuana remains illegal according to federal law.
The following organizations; Washington Discovery Help Line 866-789-7577, King County Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Program, Washington State Department of Social & Health Services, Communities That Are, and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services are associated with Marijuana 101.
