Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez Suggests Legal Marijuana ‘Pilot Program’ in California

As if there were any doubt about the widespread support for cannabis reform, Loretta Sanchez, who represents the 47th congressional district in California, has suggested that a pilot program of legal marijuana should be implemented in California.

‘…maybe it would be a good pilot program to see how that regulation of marijuana might happen in California since the populous, the majority of Californians believe maybe that should happen.”

She even supports her point with undeniable – and familiar – logic:

“Well, certainly there is one drug – it’s called alcohol – that we prohibited in the United States and had such a problem with as far as underground economy and cartels of that sort that we ended up actually regulating it and taxing it,” she said. “And so there has always been this thought that maybe if we do that with drugs, it would lower the profits in it and make some of this go away.”

What a remarkable coincidence РAssemblyman Tom Ammiano has already introduced a bill that would legalize Рand tax Рmarijuana within California. Assembly Bill 390 would be the first of its kind in the nation, and it could be revolutionary. Sanchez and Amminano prove that the support comes from politicians as well as from the constituents. Contact your state representatives and help make California the first state in the country to relegalize marijuana.
