Here are excerpts from a May 13 article by David Downs in the East Bay CA Express that I pass along without necessarily agreeing:
. . .
“Most experts agree that California has among the least structured systems of rules and regulations of any state with a medical marijuana law, meaning that for at least some users, a quasi-legal recreational market has existed for some time,” stated Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom’s Blue Ribbon Commission’s March progress report.
. . .
For years, California’s legislature hasn’t been able to resolve the tension between the pot industry and cities and cops — let alone medical versus recreational legalizers. That unresolved tension could fracture and kill reform efforts in 2016, and lots of people stand to keep profiting from that.
