Here's the entire text of the provision:
What's next is December 6th, portions of the law will go into effect (the one ounce possession and DUID mandate). A year later, the rest of it will start up.
You are partially wrong. although semantically you are right.
The governor has 30 days to ratify the ballot votes. So that is Dec. 6th 2012. But WA state has UNTIL Dec 1st 2013 (notice 2013) to have the rest of the bill up and running. So that means that sometime between now and then there will be licensed growers, licensed processors, and licensed retailers in the state as well as the DUID training for state patrol and other law enforcement officers. etc.

This is the correct link to the complete text from the secretary of state aswell, just incase anyone wanted to make sure it was the true complete text.
