On November 25 the California Attorney General’s Office approved for circulation a ballot initiative submitted as The Safe and Drug-Free Community Act, now called MEDICAL MARIJUANA. INITIATIVE STATUTE. The initiative was submitted by Roger Morgan, Founding Chairman of the Take Back America Campaign and is co-sponsored by Citizens Against Legalizing Marijuana (CALM) and The International Faith Based Coalition (IFBC).
The essence of the initiative continues making marijuana available to the few for whom the benefits may outweigh the harms, but ban privately owned grow sites in favor of one site owned or sanctioned by the government. By doing so, the potency, compounds, dosage and packaging can be more safely managed. It also looks to curb abuses under the current program while improving public safety and reducing teen drug abuse.
