The Washington Medical Marijuana Act, Initiative 1121, did not appear on the November 2011 statewide ballot in Washington as an Initiative to the People.

The measure would have required state and local agencies to enforce federal immigration laws.[1] More specifically, the initiative would have required state workers to check immigration status before issuing public benefits or a driver license; and employers to check the immigration status of all workers and law enforcement to check the status of all people charged with felonies.[2]

The measure was filed by a group called Respect Washington.[2]

Similar initiatives to the 2011 proposal were filed in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010. However, none of the proposed initiatives qualified for the statewide ballot.[2]
