Snohomish Co. prosecutor candidate endorses I-1068

EVERETT, Wash. —

A man running for Snohomish County prosecutor has come out in favor of legalizing marijuana for adults in Washington state.

Jim Kenny on Tuesday endorsed Initiative 1068, a measure that would remove all state criminal penalties for the use, possession and transfer of marijuana for adults. It would still be illegal to drive under the influence of pot.

Kenny is an assistant city attorney in Seattle. He's running against Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe. Both are Democrats.

Kenny says the U.S. has been waging a costly war on drugs for 40 years with little to show for it.

Organizers of the initiative campaign are collecting signatures in an effort to get the measure on the ballot.
