Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
It was "Stoners Against Prop. 19", not 'Stoners Against Legalization'. And here is a link to their website in case any of your readers care to know what they were really about: http://votetaxcannabis2010.blogspot.com/
You continue to beg the question that Prop. 19 was "legalization". If it had been "legalization" 31% of California voters who support marijuana legalization would not have voted against it. (I figure those are the ones that actually read it.)
"You can see from the above comments how difficult it is to unite the diverse patient community (although I think these all are the same person using multiple aliases). "
This shows how morally bankrupt ASA is. They know who William West is and Donna Lambert, and me, and they know we're not the same person.
Donna was NORML's activist of the year in 2009.
The thing was total crap before the amendments.
It's son-of-Prop-19, which was total crap.
See "Letitia Pepper sums up what is wrong with AB 2312" http://palmspringsbum.org/blog/2012/06/let…
Well you be telling us why you've consistently ignored long-time activists and prominent lawyers who tell us Prop. 19 is a Trojan Horse?
You seemed to have missed one of Dragonfly's most critical concerns, that Prop. 19 will amend and supersede Prop 215.
Further, there is nothing about a $50/ounce tax in Prop. 19. It authorizes government, at ever level, to tax and license "without limitation".
However, at current production in Oakland, when you factor in the just enacted fees, patients will be paying just under $50 in tax on their $300 ounce of MEDICINE.
See Table 3: http://www.palmspringsbum.org/blog/2010/08…
Indeed, your article is full of errors. The Herer initiative does not propose to release "all drug offenders" from jail, just those who's only conviction is for marijuana.
You completely ignore the morality of taxing medicine.
