High Times: Legalizing Marijuana Headed to California 2010 Ballot?

A California budget solution?

A measure to legalize marijuana in California has enough signatures to qualify for the November 2010 ballot, advocates say.

The Tax and Regulate Initiative has far more than the nearly 434,000 signatures needed to make the statewide ballot, said Richard Lee, well-known Oakland medical marijuana entrepreneur and the initiative’s main backer. Campaign organizers say they will submit more than 650,000 signatures of registered voters next month.

“People were eager to sign,” Lee told the Chronicle. “We heard they were ripping the petitions out of people’s hands to do it.

Heh….. I bet they were……

    Marijuana must be under control. Sure it can be used in medical practice. But do the ordinary people know about the dosis? Nope. They smoke and smoke to get satisfaction… and their brains can be damaged. Then what nation will we grow up?

    California should definitely legalize medical marijuana on the 2010 November ballot elections.

    Medical Marijuana can alleviate a laundry list of ailments caused by diseases or the treatments people must undergo to treat these ailments (chemotherapy). When I first got my cannabis card I had severely broken my knee. I was prescribed Percocet 750mg and Viocodin 750mg on top of Oxycotin 20mg (for special occasions). After I was recommended Medical Marijuana I was able to hold more food, i was able to sleep for longer stretches of time and my intense knee pain largely subsided. Since that time I have become a large proponent of Medical Marijuana. I still dont know how I feel about the legalization of Marijuana’s recreational use. I mean many people who have so called medical conditions probably don’t have pain and suffering that warrants Medical Marijuana use but who am I to say someones pain isn’t substantial enough. It is a slippery slope and a delicate situation. For more information on Cannabis culture, laws and all things Cannabis check out especially for people who live in San Diego and Orange County
