Proponents of an initiative to legalize cannabis in California will begin collecting signatures next week in an attempt to put the proposal to a vote this November.

Advocates of the Marijuana, Control Legalization & Revenue Act will need to collect roughly half a million signatures by June 30th to put their initiative on the ballot.

“[The initiative] stops putting 20,000 people a year in jail in California for low level offense”, says John Lee, Director of Americans for Policy Reform, the organization running the initiative.

Under this proposal, the possession and private cultivation (up to 12 plants) will be legalized for those 21 and older, and authorizes cannabis retail outlets which would be regulated by a seven-person Cannabis Control Commission, which will consist of members appointed by the state’s governor.

A poll released in October by the Americans Civil Liberty Union found that 65% of those in California support the legalization of cannabis.

  1. Lets do this California. Lets be Americas main supplier of weed :) lets sell our organic outdoor buds to all of the other mmj states and legal states :) I see us pulling out of debt

  2. It appears we have four different initiatives going. Can we sign all the petitions, or just one?

    Why can’t these groups agree on just one initiative and combine their signature gathering efforts?

  3. Humboldt Billy on

    2010 was a bust, I know a lot of growers are not going to back this once again. You’ve made your money, the gold rush is over, My friends were getting $4000 a pound in 2010, now its down to $1200. Really good growers with top notch product will still be able to make a living, Those motivated by greed instead of compassion have had their day. I have been a grower in humboldt for over 12 years. I will sign in favor for this once again.
