Election Notes:
  • Title: An initiated measure adopting a law relating to industrial hemp (cannabis).

    Attorney General Explanation: Initiated Measure 1 proposes a law that would make it legal under state law, but not under federal law, for a person to plant, cultivate, harvest, possess, process, transport, sell or buy industrial hemp (cannabis) or any of its by-products with a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content of one percent or less.

    A vote "Yes" would adopt the state law.
    A vote "No" would leave state law as it is.
