Yes!  Another step in the right direction.  It looks like enough signatures were collected to propose a bill that would allow California residents to possess up to one ounce of marijuana.  It makes to much sense in these economic times to legalize marijuana, and tax it.  I mean I have a little health care plan that consists of legalizing marijuana, taxing the hell out of it, and using that money to help fund health care.  In case you are wondering Lil Boosie co-signs this plan.

  • A measure to legalize marijuana in California has enough signatures to qualify for the November 2010 ballot, advocates say.

    The Tax and Regulate Initiative has far more than the nearly 434,000 signatures needed to make the statewide ballot, said Richard Lee, well-known Oakland medical marijuana entrepreneur and the initiative’s main backer. Campaign organizers say they will submit more than 650,000 signatures of registered voters next month.

    “People were eager to sign,” Lee told the Chronicle. “We heard they were ripping the petitions out of people’s hands to do it.

    “We’ll keep our organizers on the street to keep the momentum going strong, but today we’re declaring an overwhelming victory.”

    The proposal would legalize possession of up to one ounce of marijuana for adults 21 and older. Residents could cultivate marijuana gardens up to 25 square feet. City and county governments would determine whether to permit and tax marijuana sales within their boundaries.
