We Are So Close Cali!
As you already know from my “One Small Step” post, Californian marijuana supporters/activists successfully gathered well over Six Hundred Thousand signatures to get marijuana legalization and taxation put on November’s ballot. Above is a follow up report from CNN on the “Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act”. I seriously can not wait for marijuana to be legalized and taxed like cigarettes.
I can see a lot of problems in the early years but there is so much that legalizing this herb can do both for the state and the country. This news has given me a reason to look forward to November, I know I will do my part and vote. If this measure passes then people 21 and over will legal be able to have an ounce of marijuana for PERSONAL use. I like that they got rid of the MEDICINAL factor when putting this on the ballot. Yes, marijuana does have medicinal qualities, but be honest, you’re just using that as an excuse to smoke and not have to worry so much about being busted.
Below is a summary of what we are trying to do by getting this measure on November’s ballot:
Allows people 21 years old or older to possess, cultivate, or transport marijuana for personal use. Permits local governments to regulate and tax commercial production and sale of marijuana to people 21 years old or older. Prohibits people from possessing marijuana on school grounds, using it in public, smoking it while minors are present, or providing it to anyone under 21 years old. Maintains current prohibitions against driving while impaired. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Savings of up to several tens of millions of dollars annually to state and local governments on the costs of incarcerating and supervising certain marijuana offenders. Unknown but potentially major tax, fee, and benefit assessment revenues to state and local government related to the production and sale of marijuana products.
