CALIFORNIA – The Women’s Marijuana Movement (WMM) is coordinating a day of action on October 5th in support of California’s Proposition 19, the ballot measure to control and tax cannabis similarly to alcohol. (Learn more about Prop 19. at www.taxcannabis.com).

Supervisors Shawn Nelson and John Moorlach voted against the moratorium, leaving it short of the four votes it needed. Moorlach said there was no urgency for county officials to issue a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries, because nobody has asked for the required special use permit. Supervisor Patricia Bates said she was worried about not having a plan in place by Jan. 1 if voters approve Proposition 19. “I don’t want to turn people away and then get lawsuits,” Bates said.
LONG BEACH, CA – On Dec. 17 the Long Beach Police Department conducted what they’re calling “an enforcement action” concerning three medicinal marijuana facilities—two in Long Beach, one in Garden Grove (all three allegedly related—more on that below)—resulting in over a dozen arrests. But there are a lot of pieces to the puzzle; and just how they fit together is not clear.
The reality is clear: Marijuana is a huge part of our state’s economy, and we can no longer afford to keep our heads in the sand. The time to act is now. No bill or proposition is perfect, and certainly Prop. 19 has some flaws, but to agree that the “war on drugs” has been an abject failure yet refuse to take action to change it simply defies all logic and common sense. At what point do we say ‘enough is enough?’
