The cannabis initiatives in California
    #11167297 - 10/02/09 01:40 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Well, I'm here to see if anyone has knowledge or opinions about the differing options advocates are looking to use in the near future.

I'll give my brief research here, to help anyone else get up to speed.

There are 3 initiatives looking to gather signatures for the 2010 election. These are:

CCI - abolishes all penalties and mandates state taxing and clears the record of those convicted for marijuana offenses

tc2010 - allows for possession of one ounce by adults and allows local taxation and local control

common sense act - not yet prominent, but repeals state laws against marijuana, gives 1 year to institute state regulations, and prohibits governments within the state from enforcing marijuana laws

In addition, there is AB390, the Marijuana Control, Regulation, and Education Act making its way to the California State Assembly.

I've seen the petitions for CCI already, how about you?

I've only heard about AB390.




Also, through the grapevine, I heard that Marlboro is manufacturing cannabis cigarettes as we speak that are ready for mass dispersion. And my source is a pretty damn good source. He works with Grassroots Campaign; they work for CA state legislatures like Prop 8 and what not.

Once the tobacco companies manufacture cannabis you will start to see it causing cancer.  With all the additives they are somehow allowed to put into cigs, I won't be surprised if a correlation between mass produced marijuana products and cancer arises.  I'll be growing my own when it is legal, thank you.

What do you people think will happen if that ballot initiative does pass?  The federal government will probably come in and start to shut that shit down.  That will cause there to be a national debate on California's right to legalize weed if they want to.  It should draw a lot more attention to the issue, which is a very good thing.

Interesting notion.


What if CA leaves the Union. LOL

There isn't any empirical evidence; true. But I wouldn't doubt the possibility.



And I don't think my ex-boss would lie about something like that, especially if his occupation has everything to do with controversial, political legislative. Plus, he's a pretty smart man who knows some pretty high-up people. I don't doubt the possibility that he could just be spreading hearsay, though. He was pretty drunk when he told me this.




I don't know. Maybe I'm just blinded by my wishful thinking.





You know it'd be fucking awesome though. Kind of.

It's pretty certain that they are poised to get into the game and have probably conducted research into this potentially new (legal) market, including predictions of the size for the product, the legal issues, prices, additives, marketing et cetera. It's highly doubtful in my mind that they have used any real cannabis yet because it would be too risky and there is no outlet for it.

The tobacco companies would probably try to extract the cannabinoids and lace their cigarettes with a small amount to give a little marijuana buzz, but keep the nicotine addiction.

That would epic failz.




And what's sad is that that sounds highly plausible.

They'll add trace amounts of crack, and lots of extra cyanide and ammonia
