    By Associated Press May 4 at 1:23 PM
    SAN FRANCISCO — Backers of a marijuana legalization initiative said Wednesday they have collected enough signatures for the measure to qualify for the November ballot in California.

    The coalition that includes former Facebook president Sean Parker and is backed by Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and marijuana advocacy groups says it has collected 600,000 signatures from registered voters — far more than the 365,000 needed — ahead of the July 5 deadline.

    Newsom, a Democratic candidate for governor in 2018, and other supporters of the Adult Use of Marijuana Act planned to launch a campaign Wednesday in San Francisco aimed at getting it passed by voters.

    The measure would allow possession of one ounce of marijuana and cultivation of six marijuana plants for adults 21 and older. It also would place a 15 percent tax on retail sales of the drug.

    Meanwhile, those opposed to legalization launched a campaign to defeat the measure.

    The group, which includes police, unions, elected officials, small growers and hospital officials, said it will lay out legal loopholes that should concern even those generally supportive of legalization.

    Ventura police Chief Ken Corney, president of the California Police Chiefs Association, said current law prohibits convicted meth and heroin felons from being involved in medical marijuana.

    “But this new initiative will specifically allow for convicted major meth and heroin dealers to be licensed recreational marijuana vendors in California,” Corney said. “You have to question proponents in terms of placing personal wealth and corporation profits ahead of community well-being.”

    The California Hospital Association, the Small Growers Association and the California Teamsters are among the opposition to the initiative.

    I don't smoke weed, but if this becomes legal I'll buy a gram, especially now that everything has purple or red pubes all over it, much better than what I used to smoke.

    Just go easy your first time - like one or two hits. The stuff today can be crazy strong(but I love it) and some people get so fucked up their first time they just end up hating it.

    At the same time that Calif is voting to make pot legal Gov Brown is making vaping illegal in public. Pot smoke is good but steam is bad because it contains no pot?

    @Mack when weed is recreationally legal, can you smoke or vape in public?
