(ED. the below is from savecannabis.org, this is the 2nd cannabis legalization initiative being circulated.)

Hello,

I’m excited to announce, shortly after 4:20pm last Friday, 10-11-13, we filed the Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act of 2014. The proponents of this new initiative are John Lee, Dege Coutee, Bob Bowerman, and Dave Hodges (myself).

For the last year we have been reaching out to thousands of people with a grassroots, “open source” document to legalize cannabis in California. This is the first project of Americans for Policy Reform (AFPR), a new 501c4 dedicated to legislative reform. AFPR gathered information from people within the California Medical Marijuana movement and others from all walks of life.

This is a breakthrough change for Californians and a serious issue for most. By using a public open source document, we were given great insight into what the real issues were and how to solve them. The Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act of 2014 leaves no details out. It not only legalizes cannabis, but it also shows how it will be governed in an acceptable way that the majority of Californians can endorse. In addition, the Act is in compliance with new guidelines from the US Attorney General office.

This initiative measure grants to Californians the freedom to use, grow, transport and sell cannabis subject to reasonable regulation and taxation in a manner similar to alcohol. The measure will:

* Comply with the Attorney General guidelines

* Prevent the distribution of marijuana to minors

* Prevent the growing of marijuana on public lands

* Prevent the profits from the sale of marijuana from going to criminal enterprises, gangs and cartels

* Prevent the violence and the use of firearms in the cultivation and distribution of marijuana

* Prevent “drugged driving” and other adverse public health consequences associated with marijuana use

* Clarify California’s medical marijuana laws

* Generate millions of dollars in new revenue for California

* Save law enforcement millions of dollars and provide them time to fight real crime

* Separate legitimate cannabis businesses from drug dealers

With this filing, we start the final stages toward ending cannabis prohibition in California.

Attached is the language we filed. Feel free to contact me directly with any questions.

    Of course they want to “legalize” it = TAX. Let me know when the proposal is to decriminalize it.
