California lawmakers to debate full marijuana legalization tomorrow
    #11331295 - 10/27/09 02:18 PM (8 years, 29 days ago)

Quote:

California state lawmakers are scheduled to hear testimony tomorrow in support of taxing and regulating the commercial production and distribution of marijuana for adults age 21 and older.

Members of the California Assembly Committee on Public Safety have called for the hearing, entitled “Examining the Fiscal and Legal Implication of the Legalization and Regulation of Marijuana.” The hearing will be chaired by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), sponsor of Assembly Bill 390, the Marijuana Control, Regulation, and Education Act. It will take place at 10am in room 126 of the State Capitol.

A press conference will take place prior to the hearing at 9 am in Capitol Room 317.

California NORML Coordinator Dale Gieringer is scheduled to testify before the Committee at noon. [Editor's note: Read Dale's written testimony here.] NORML has also submitted prepared testimony to the Committee, which is available online here.

Several representatives from law enforcement, including the California Police Chiefs Association and the Office of the Attorney General’s Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement, are scheduled to testify in opposition to the bill.

“The criminal prohibition of marijuana provides law enforcement and state regulators with no legitimate market controls,” states NORML Deputy Director Paul Armentano in prepared testimony.  “This absence of state and local government controls jeopardizes rather than promotes public safety. I urge this Committee to move forward with the enactment of sensible regulations for legalizing marijuana.”

Tomorrow’s hearing marks one of the first times since 1913 that the California legislature has debated ending criminal prohibition.

If you live in California you can contact your member of the Assembly in advance of tomorrow’s historic hearing here.

All it took was a depression to realize we could tax this and make more money.

as of right now it's really a matter of when, not if, california will legalize. then when, not if, it is shown that ending prohibition is a great idea, other states will catch on and it will eventually reach the federal level. i can't wait to not be a criminal for living my life the way i choose.

for anyone interested, here is the link for NORML's testimony. it's a good read

If that is your game just switch to either methamphetamine, cocaine or heroin.  Much more profitable and you can guarantee a never ending client base.  Shit is like a business mans wet dream.

Meth: I dunno a cook
Coke: Don't have the connects
Heroin: Don't want the clientèle 

I don't want it to be legalized until I'm actually 21 which is hilarious.  I would always vote to legalize but it would become a tad harder for me to acquire being that I am only 19.  On that note, I'm going outside to rip my bong.


(weed, among other things to me, is way easier to obtain than alcohol even though I have 21 year old friends.  My drug dealers just don't ID... Sad.)

Hopefully this causes a ripple affect throughout the world. Legalization is long overdue.

well if it is legalized, someone will have to supply it, and the consumer will have to trade something of value for it.  so there will be money to be had.  on all levels.  and whos to say that the price will go down, if they charge x for a bag now, and later they want to make money in taxes they will either take x and add the tax.  or make it so that with the tax the cost of the bag, x, will be lower, but the prices will stay the same or higher, atleast at first, they will regulate the shit out of it to ensure this.  probably cap the price at like 1-2 hundy an ounce, then add a 100% tax on it, then boom, every customer is making the state lots of dinero.

Everywhere anything, anything is taxed and regulated, there's some kind of insane park ranger character on a white horse.

I'll take you up on that bet.

$20 says Tom Ammiano is arrested for terroristic threats and intent to distribute as soon as he walks in the door. That or an assassin from the Pharmaceutical industry will take him out on the drive over.
