Pot advocates in British Columbia (Canada) say now that voters in Washington have passed a law to legalize possession of marijuana, it is time for a similar referendum. On Tuesday 55 per cent of voters in Washington State approved Initiative 502, legalizing the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana by anyone over the age of 21. Dana Larsen, the leader of Sensible BC, has been campaigning to trigger a similar B.C. referendum on legalization of marijuana in the fall of 2014.
