vote for california marijuana initiativesI am very happy to announce that the California Marijuana Control, Legalization, and Revenue Act has been filed! Below is a message that I received from the campaign. If you are in California, get active! Marijuana legalization in California is way overdue:

I’m excited to announce, shortly after 4:20pm last Friday, 10-11-13, we filed the Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act of 2014. The proponents of this new initiative are John Lee, Dege Coutee, Bob Bowerman, and Dave Hodges (myself).
For the last year we have been reaching out to thousands of people with a grassroots, “open source” document to legalize cannabis in California.  This is the first project of Americans for Policy Reform (AFPR), a new 501c4 dedicated to legislative reform. AFPR gathered information from people within the California Medical Marijuana movement and others from all walks of life.
This is a breakthrough change for Californians and a serious issue for most. By using a public open source document, we were given great insight into what the real issues were and how to solve them.  The Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act of 2014 leaves no details out. It not only legalizes cannabis, but it also shows how it will be governed in an acceptable way that the majority of Californians can endorse. In addition, the Act is in compliance with new guidelines from the US Attorney General office.
This initiative measure grants to Californians the freedom to use, grow, transport and sell cannabis subject to reasonable regulation and taxation in a manner similar to alcohol. The measure will:
* Comply with the Attorney General guidelines
* Prevent the distribution of marijuana to minors
* Prevent the growing of marijuana on public lands
* Prevent the profits from the sale of marijuana from going to criminal enterprises, gangs and cartels
* Prevent the violence and the use of firearms in the cultivation and distribution of marijuana
* Prevent “drugged driving” and other adverse public health consequences associated with marijuana use
* Clarify California’s medical marijuana laws
* Generate millions of dollars in new revenue for California
* Save law enforcement millions of dollars and provide them time to fight real crime
* Separate legitimate cannabis businesses from drug dealers
With this filing, we start the  final stages toward ending cannabis prohibition in California.

  1. Great, just what we need, another legalization initiative. The California Cannabis Hemp Initiative 2014 http://tinyurl.com/lzmxzw9 has already been approved and is currently gathering signatures. All this new initiative will do is confuse people and split the vote. Way to go CMCLRA, I guess you didn’t learn a thing from the 2012 fiasco when none of the initiatives were able to get enough signatures to qualify. If we’d of had just one initiative in front of the public California would likely have been the first state to legalize. Now you’ve sabotaged our chances again. I hope CCHI gets the required number of signatures before your ill timed attempt hits the street. I also hope it fails in the most spectacular fashion possible. The last thing we need are competing measures on the ballot.

  3. That is great news!,I hope the morons here in South African Government will get their act together soon!!

  4. Does the proposed new law do anything to protect workers from being fired by their employer’s for testing positive? If it’s legal to consume it, it must be illegal for an employer to for you for it. I’m not suggesting we all show up for work blazed out of our gourds buttruly there needs to be some protection for employees who want to partake during their free time….

  5. Doesn’t help the movement when mmj collectives like Coasterdam in Marina CA get caught publishing member names on Facebook and the operator gets found guilty of harassment and threats of violence. Sets everyone back.

  6. There is always going to a black market marijuana trade in California. It’s how people feed their families here since our economy is otherwise complete trash.

  7. Good luck, California! Don’t allow the minority of “greedy growers” and dispensary owners who think that medical cannabis is a for-profit industry (and want to maintain a black market price index) undermine full legalization efforts, this time!!!
