Time to Move to California! UPDATE
Well its already pretty much legal if you visit a "doctor" and get him to give you a "card" by saying you have "back problems" then you can go to dispensaries and get yourself some hippie lettuce (weed). However it looks like Californians are so lazy even that was not enough for them now they might just legalize it completely. Assemblyman Tom Ammiano is leading the way.
"Quintin Mecke, Ammiano's press secretary, confirmed to SF Weekly that the assemblyman's 10 a.m. Monday press conference regarding "new legislation related to the state's fiscal crisis" will broach the subject of reaping untold -- and much-needed -- wealth from the state's No. 1 cash crop.
Mecke said Ammiano's proposed bill "would remove all penalties in California law on cultivation, transportation, sale, purchase, possession, or use of marijuana, natural THC, or paraphernalia for persons over the age of 21." SF Weekly
Now if this bill passes this will mean that it will be legal on the state level. Meaning it is still federally illegal, so a local cop won't hassle you but some DEA agent might mess with your stache like they have done with local dispensaries.
But whatever California!!! You still have it better than Florida, over here if your caught with a roach you are liable to get the death penalty.
**Alright we now have video about this story that I found over at CNN.com
This video is crazy it starts as an unbiased piece about the possible legalization on marijuana to save the economy. Then it takes a sharp turn and basically calls the Assemblyman gay, Obama shoots down the idea of legalization, and then they end the piece with statements from cops... Yep marijuana is never going to be legal. Sorry potheads
