Revised Code of Washington, Chapter 69.51A
Fifty-nine percent of voters approved Initiative 692 on November 3, 1998. Initiative 692 created Chapter 69.51A RCW, which allows patients with terminal illnesses and persons with some chronic diseases described in the law to use and possess marijuana once they've received appropriate documentation from their physician. The law protects the physicians and primary caregivers of these patients against criminal prosecution and/or penalizing administrative actions by the state of Washington. Law only gives an affirmative defense at trial, not a protection from arrest.
