A lawsuit contesting the constitutionality of Initiative 1183, which privatized Washington State liquor sales, was rejected by the courts on Thursday. The Washington Association for Substance Abuse and Violence Prevention had originally filed the suit claiming that the Initiative is unconstitutional due to the fact that it addresses more than one subject–something the Washington State Constitution prohibits. They also argued that the ballot measure was misleading in its wording because the fees incorporated in the Initiative should have been labeled as “taxes.” This was the opposition’s final attempt at blocking the legislation before it took effect on June 1, 2012
