ReformCA will soon file an initiative to legalize cannabis in California. We're on schedule to qualify for the November 2016 ballot.
ReformCA is leading the way to legalization. We’ve built a grassroots movement with 70,000 supporters of legalization from across the state. We’re also partnering with state and national organizations – such as the Drug Policy Alliance and Marijuana Policy Project – to build consensus around policy considerations for legalization, while consulting with state leaders in Sacramento and getting their feedback. Furthermore, we’ve assembled a formidable political and polling team to lay the foundation for an eventual campaign.
We believe that cannabis legalization in California should:
✓ Protect medical cannabis patients and encourage safe access.
✓ Make personal cannabis possession legal for adults in limited amounts.
✓ Provide California new tax revenues from legal cannabis business and sales.
✓ Designate cannabis as an agricultural product, and allow limited personal cultivation.
✓ Encourage sustainable and environmentally sound practices.
✓ Eliminate felony penalties for minor, non-violent marijuana offenses. Allow adults to consume on private property where allowed.
✓ Adhere to the 8 Federal enforcement priorities; prohibit sales to children, prevent diversion to other states, prevent enriching gangs and violent cartels or using legal sales to cover for trafficking. Prevent drugged driving, illegal activity, and trespass grows, as well as possession or use on federal property.
