Legalize And Tax Marijuana! Says Ammiano.

SF Weekly is reporting about Assemblyman Tom Ammiano's proposal to help alleviate fiscal problems of California by legalizing pot. It might actually alleviate more than fiscal problems. San Francisco may take over from Amsterdam from being the weed capital of the world. What ever the Dutch do, they can't grow Marijuana like Californians!

Quintin Mecke, Ammiano's press secretary, confirmed to SF Weekly that the assemblyman's 10 a.m. Monday press conference regarding "new legislation related to the state's fiscal crisis" will broach the subject of reaping untold -- and much-needed -- wealth from the state's No. 1 cash crop.

Mecke said Ammiano's proposed bill "would remove all penalties in California law on cultivation, transportation, sale, purchase, possession, or use of marijuana, natural THC, or paraphernalia for persons over the age of 21."
Assemblyman Tom Ammiano will announce legislation on Today to legalize marijuana and earn perhaps $1 billion annually by taxing it.
Well I am ready for a few laughs!
