Certainly an influence on what happens throughout the nation, California will have the question of re-legalization on their ballot in November. Here’s more:
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday that proponents of the Adult Use of Marijuana Act have collected enough signatures to see a legalization measure appear on November’s ballot. Advocates claim to have submitted about 600,000 signatures, and only 366,000 are needed to qualify.
The measure would make it legal for anyone 21 and older to possess up to an ounce of cannabis, and would establish a regulatory framework for the commercial cultivation and distribution of recreational pot. The law would impose a 15 percent tax on all retail cannabis sales, which is expected to generate hundreds of millions in new tax revenue for the state.
. . .
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa), who supports the measure, calls this an issue of personal freedom. “I can’t think of a bigger waste of government money than to try to use it to control the private lives of adults,” said Rohrabacher. “The walls of cannabis prohibition and this tyranny that our people have faced is coming down. Join us in tearing down this wall.”

When California re-legalizes the entire west coast will be free. When Maine re-legalizes that will be the first crack in the east coast. The cannabis revenues generated in the newly free states are going to be a siren call to their neighboring jurisdictions. Money, in the form of tax revenue and jobs, is what will ultimately set us free.
We have passed the tipping point. The eventual re-legalizing of the cannabis plant will start picking up momentum. So stay focused and lets get the job done.
