Vote No to to legalization before it is too late, or is it already?

Let us use California as an example for a start.
Californians have no protections at all under AUMA.
The Section 10 amendment… gives the State Legislature the right to change pretty much anything in the Adult Use of Marijuana Act except its purpose. And its purpose is to raise tax money.

This legislation will enable law makers to legalize cannabis first, then strip you of you right to grow and impose what ever restrictions they wish without a vote of the people. A special, and unusual, provision in AUMA provides that none of these cannabis taxes will go to benefit the General Fund, or to public schools or community colleges.

If legalized, piss tests for employment will remain the same!

The new legislation could potentially open a door for big corporations that are interested only in profit. It puts consumers and communities in danger and destroys the established unique environment of California marijuana market. Leticia Pepper claims that some corporations are already building a distribution infrastructure. Charlo Greene, an owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, supports the claim, saying that ‘any person who cares about social justice first, before business, should vote no for the Adult Use of Marijuana Act in California.’

At least when it is legal people will not be jailed for cannabis anymore. OOOPS!
The act would create new felonies and misdemeanors. Those caught in violation of the law could receive some serious jail time. After passing, a possession of excessive amounts of cannabis or growing marijuana could send you to jail up to three years.
Hey! WTF everybody said legalization will put an end to people going to prison for cannabis?

This is just a lie to get you to vote yes to legalization and then they will pull the rug out from under you!

Jeffrey Zinsmeister, executive vice president of Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM), a coalition of medical professionals, public policy experts.

Zinsmeister said The state should have gone for a medical or "science-based" approach rather than a corporate one.

"You know there's something real wrong with a marijuana legalization initiative if the guy who wrote the medical marijuana initiative in that state is against it," he said of the proposed law.

Dennis Peron, a coauthor of the proposition that granted California's current medical marijuana, does indeed oppose Prop 64. Like others, he said it undermines medical weed and isn't necessary.

Power to the people, not corporate America!

I think it may just be too late already.....Say good by to home growing and say hello to mail order trash weed. You will soon be forced to take what they want to give you and for a price they will be able to set as soon as their is no longer any competition.

If you disagree speak up, but back it up with facts also.

Home growing, possession allowances are always better than none.

Why?

Because it allows people to talk about cannabis, without looking over their shoulder for a cop first. This allows the truth to flow and when the truth flows, legislation begins to, and continues to, ease up.

Freeing the cannabis is a process, starting with the correct education of the naysaying adult public. Thems the facts, jack.

Goodbye?

You're afraid of 6 months in jail?

Losing some stuff?

Relative to literally every state in the country there are no penalties...Even if you were going to see all 6 of those months, which you probably aren't. That's really too high a risk?

Just don't get caught making one of the banned extracts

Funnily enough, I noticed the opposite happening in Colorado the last few years. Fewer and fewer employers are drug testing, moving to capability based hiring/firing. You screw up, you get fired. You don't screw up, you keep the job and get promoted.

Random drug screening is for managers who don't know how to manage people.

With the number of physically mature folks over the age of 18/21 (take your pick), that are still acting like children, it's my semi educated opinion that it's already too late. These 'adult' children are only creating more of the same.
These people want what they want & they want it now with no regard to who it may hurt now or in the future. They only care about themselves!

Guess the non growing smokers better get used to wal mart weed then. People are going to get what they can afford, not some over hyped name. The hype is mainly a forum thing.
