Whilst Gordon Brown and the Government classify marijuana upwards in the controlled substances league, State legislature Assemblyman Tom Ammiano in California is introducing a legalisation bill. According to SF Weekly the 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.Not only that, the Bill will also prohibit state and local law officers from enforcing the Federal marijuana laws. Then comes the killer, the Bill would establish,
a fee on the sale of marijuana at a rate of $50 per ounce.Is the Bill likely to pass? Who knows. It will certainly do the budget issues in California the world of good if it does.
