S.F. Assemblyman Proposes Measure To Legalize Marijuana
"Toke out to bail out" is the California congress' new economic
stimulus plan. It is a measure to legalize, regulate and tax
marijuana waits, and is waiting to be approved. San Francisco's
Assemblyman Tom Ammiano proposed measure AB 390 last Monday to
legalize and tax marijuana.
This proposal will make marijuana, like alcohol, regulated to prevent

The Los Angeles Times states that Ammiano's main argument for the
legislation is that it would bring about a billion dollars a year in
tax revenue, helping the state close its unprecedented budget deficit.
