The Next Marijuana Voter Initiative
by Steve Kubby

Now that California has made possession of an ounce of cannabis the equivalent of a $100 parking ticket, our best best is to pass a similar voter initiative for personal cultivation and sales.  Growing and selling cannabis would still be illegal, but the penalty for possessing or selling under a pound or growing less than 25 plants would be a $100 fine and a citation.… Read more ...
