I hope all the soccer moms are ok with their kids being stopped, arrested, and convicted for DUI under the zero tolerance DUI provisions of I-502. A conviction for DUI is far worse than one for simple possession. That does not seem very much like "legalization" to me! Maybe that's why an insurance company is I-502's primary financial backer. Progressive Insurance stands to make millions on high risk insurance if the DUI provisions of I-502 pass so it is obvious why they support it.
The insurance companies, corporate monopolists and policy wonks behind the nightmare that is I-502 should spend their millions of dollars to actually help end the war on drugs, not on giving the anti drug forces a powerful new DUI weapon that will allow them to persecute and convict any marijuana smoking driver regardless of whether they are actually "impaired".
Even Tim Eyman and his corporate backers have more integrity than the out of State and moneyed interests behind I-502.
