California to legalize Cannabis – and tax it

by dope smoker on February 24, 2009


This one is almost unbelievable:

“Assemblyman Tom Ammiano will announce legislation on Monday to legalize marijuana and earn perhaps $1 billion annually by taxing it.”


“Mecke said Ammiano’s proposed bill “would remove all penalties in California law on cultivation, transportation, sale, purchase, possession, or use of marijuana, natural THC, or paraphernalia for persons over the age of 21.”

More on this dreamlike story here and here and here.

Can the rest of the world please follow suit, now.

(thanks Ed)

Here’s a thought. If governments worldwide adopted this policy, there would be no more economic crisis. How about that?

UPDATE: here’s the news story
