SPOKANE—The Spokane City Council approved a proposal Monday to make marijuana prosecution the lowest law enforcement priority.

The approval gives the group Sensible Washington the green light to start gathering signatures to qualify for the November ballot.

It means city money won’t be used to fund local enforcement of federal marijuana laws.  It also only applies to adults in possession of the drug.

An initiative on the Washington ballot this fall would legalize recreational marijuana use for people 21 and older.
