Marijuana Legalization In California: Pot Rocky Path

Marijuana Legalization In California: Pot Rocky Path – California will soon be the first state to take a vote on whether or not marijuana should be legalized for recreational use. However, the outlook for Proposition 19 doesn’t look all that great, even if it does get passed, since the federal government will most likely challenge the proposition, and probably overturn it.

The details of Proposition 19 would essentially allow adults that are 21 years of age or older to grow marijuana at their home, and to legally keep up to an ounce for their own personal use. According to the Proposition, each city and county in California would be allowed to regulate the sales, as well as put a tax on them in order to attempt to generate revenue for the state.

According to supporters of Proposition 19, the bill could allow for up to $1.4 billion in revenue from taxes, money that the floundering state desperately needs. Interestingly enough, the proposition has those dealers of medical marijuana worried about what the effects on their businesses would be.

It would be more difficult for employers, as it would be difficult for them to regulate the usage of the drug while employees are working.
