California’s Budget Solution: Legalize Marijuana


San Francisco Assemblyman Tom Ammiano proposed a bill this week that would decriminalize and legalize the sale of marijuana to adults 21 and over in California.  The tax revenues would generate more than a billion dollars annually for our cashed-starved state.  A perfectly plausible and sensible solution really, but sure to be met with resistance from the federal government’s prohibition policy on cannabis.  However, Ammiano said federal officials may be receptive to such changes under the administration of President Barack Obama.  

Imagine the boon to tourism in our state if this happens too.  Buy a ticket to Disneyland and a bag of weed. The Magic Kingdom awaits.

Listen to the psych rock sounds of Arbouretum’s “False Spring”.  Their new album Song of the Pearl will be out on Thrill Jockey records March 10.  They will be touring heavily this summer opening for Band of Horses.
