CALIFORNIA: There’s been mad talk about finally legalizing recreational marijuana in the great state of California.
Well, this is the one you’ve all been waiting for: The big daddy of legalization proponents, ReformCA, part of the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform (CCPR), says it will have its ballot initiative ready to file with the state attorney general within weeks.
The group made the announcement during a press conference yesterday afternoon.
Attorney General Kamala Harris will have to approve language for signature gathering, but ReformCA already has hired a firm, Progressive Campaigns Inc., to get voters’ endorsements.
It then will have time to gather and turn in signatures. If there are enough verified endorsements, the initiative will be included on the 2016 presidential election ballot in California.
