Prop. 19: Legalize responsibly

Remember the lottery? It was going to bring millions of dollars into our public school systems, infrastructures, etc. It did not.

Now we have this Prop 19. Again they tell us it will bring millions of dollars into the coffers. It will not. Law enforcement will consume every penny trying to enforce it.

For those who are for legalization, this is not the proposition that will provide you with what you want. Each county has the authority to restrict or permit growing. Each county has the authority and responsibility to litigate another arbitrary law.

The Supreme Court will certainly overturn the law just as they did Prop 8. Small growers will become criminals. The cartels, they use public lands to grow, sell it for cheap in our dispensaries and pay no taxes on the money they return to their cartels.

We are seeing union backing now as the vote comes closer. I suspect some cartel money is backing this legislation as well, knocking out the small growers, taking over the dispensaries.

The author has one foot in a grow room and another in a corporate pocket.

GMO marijuana is not medicine. Legalize responsibly or vote no on 19.
