old question, looks like no one replies to these anymore =(

Seems like you are re-defining the argument 'time_string' right when it is passed through the to_timezone function.

try creating a new variable like "local_time" and change pytz.timezone('US/Pacific') to accept the 'time_string' argument. =)

hope this helps.

Worked for me. Thanks for helping.
