John McKayA coalition that includes former U.S. Attorney John McKay, Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes and travel guide Rick Steves is launching an initiative that would legalize marijuana in Washington state.

Chris Gregoire vetoed most of a medical-marijuana bill that had passed the state Legislature.
