California Marijuana Legalization Initiative Approved for Signature Gathering for 2014 Ballot
    #711424 - 02/04/14 10:44 AM (2 years, 9 months ago)

http://www.thedailychronic.net/2014/27497/california-marijuana-marijuana-control-legalization-and-revenue-act-approved-signature-gathering-2014-ballot/

SACRAMENTO, CA – The California Attorney General has approved the Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act (MCLR) for signature gathering for the 2014 election.

The proposal, if it makes the ballot and is approved by voters, would legalize adult cultivation of 12 marijuana plants with six flowering per residence and allow possession of all the marijuana produced by those plants.

Hemp would also be legalized, non-violent pot prisoners’ cases would be reviewed for release and expungement, and commercial regulations would be promulgated.

Fiscal analysis of the measure by California Attorney General Kamala Harris found that by passing the MCLR, the state  will “reduce costs potentially exceeding $100 million annually to state and local governments related to enforcing certain marijuana-related offenses, handling the related criminal cases in the court system, and incarcerating and supervising certain marijuana offenders.”

The analysis also states that potential net additional tax revenues of a few hundred million dollars annually related to the production and sale of marijuana could be realized.

For over a year Americans for Policy Reform, the group behind MCLR, has been working with thousands of Californians on a grassroots, “open source” document to legalize Marijuana for medical, industrial and adult social use. Through its open, inclusive process, MCLR has the support of dozens of attorneys and thousands of marijuana activists.

With a comprehensive structure based on the needs of the California community, and the US Department of Justice guidelines, the MCLR Act of 2014 provides equally for supporters of marijuana and those who are still concerned about the effects of legalization.

Americans for Policy Reform says it already has $500,000 in funding to collect over half a million signatures by June 30, but they say they may need up to $2 million more to make marijuana legalization in California a reality this year.

“We are calling on all marijuana users& supporters to help make 2014 happen,” said proponent Dave Hodges.

California rejected legalization in 2010 under Prop 19, but today polls show 52% support among Californians for legalization, a figure that rises to 60% among likely voters.

Restricts the use in California of genetically modified Cannabis seeds.




Saw this in the proposal. So does this mean fem seeds would be outlawed?

I assume this is a measure to keep Monsanto out of the business, at least in California. Or maybe they fear folks will genetically engineer a new super potent strain of marijuana. 
Fem seeds aren't genetically modified.

But then an even greater force emerged: The un! And the un un-nazi'd the world! Forever!
