What Does California Do In 2014 For It’s Next “Legalize Cannabis” Ballot Initiative?

As most of you already know, California will not have a Cannabis Legalization Initiative on November’s election. The reason is that there were three initiatives all competing for scarce ballot signatures and cash – they go hand in hand. Esstially $1 or so is the cost of a single signature. Would a decent ballot initiative pass in California? YES!! I have no doubt that California is ready.

After November, we can all look at what worked in other states, including Washington, Oregon and Colorado. The Colorado Initiative is pretty good and could be easily adapted for Ca in two years.

Writing an initiative that would pass is a certainty; getting the entire cannabis community behind it, is much less certain. We will just have to elect to GET IT DONE THIS TIME.

I am waiting to see what happens after next state or two pass legalization. This will probably just be in a few weeks! We can see what the Feds do. Frankly, I don’t think they will or can do anything without local law enforcement support. Also, I doubt the Feds will begin firing on city and state officials.

So, I say let’s start working on our next initiative and get it passed.

Cannabis May Prevent COVID-19 Infections

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD's effect on COVID-19's ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
