Marijuana Nation

Marijuana Nation is a 2014 book by University of Washington professor Roger Roffman. The book describes his involvement as an Army officer in the Vietnam War, and later as a NORML member leading Washington State legislation, the Marijuana Education and Control Act of 1977. The act would have decriminalized cannabis in the state 35 years before the eventual passage of Washington Initiative 502 (I-502). The legislation passed 52 to 43 in the Washington State House in April 1977, but died in the state Senate.
