On election day in 2012 as Americans were voting for the office of President of the United States and several other elected positions, the people of Colorado and Washington were also weighing the value of decriminalizing the recreational use of cannabis products, including marijuana. In both states, voters passed ballot measures to legalize recreational use of the plant and its byproducts, becoming the first two states in the nation to do so.
The reverse side of the 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Washington Silver Round includes a colonial-era portrait of President George Washington inspired by his image on the US $1 bill. This depiction of Washington features a lit marijuana joint in his mouth and includes an inscription above his head of “Hemp, Grow it Everywhere.” Additional inscriptions on this side include “State of Washington” around the top design rocker and “Initiative 502 – 2012” along the bottom design rocker.
Washington voters had one of the highest voter turnouts on November 6, 2012, when Initiative 502 was added to the ballot on election day. Some 81% of eligible voters in the state turned out to vote, driving by the intense feelings on both sides of the issue. Legalized cannabis sales doubled in the state from 2016 to 2017, generating tax revenues of $113 million in 2017 alone.
On the obverse of 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Washington Silver Round, you’ll notice a large cannabis leaf in the center with cuffs on the hands emerging from its sides. This is meant to symbolize federal regulations that restrain recreational marijuana use in the country by criminalizing the act.
