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!
