California AB186, which attempted to legalize safe injection drug sites, was fortunately vetoed by Governor Brown. In so doing he proclaimed “…..enabling illegal and destructive drug use will never work. The disadvantages of this bill far outweigh the possible benefits.” Based on actual experience at similar sites in Canada, one can easily agree.

They Got it Wrong Again is the official Slogan of the campaign against Prop. 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), also called Proposition 64 in which will be on the California ballot in November. StopPot2016 joins CALMCa and SAM Action in opposing this measure. This week the official campaign issued a statement:

Under current law, convicted cartel meth and heroin dealers are banned from being involved in medical marijuana, but this initiative overturns that ban and lets these felons be licensed to sell recreational marijuana. The proponents were specifically advised by numerous law enforcement groups during the comment period about this huge flaw, but they deliberately chose to keep it in, and you have to ask “why?” Who is that provision for? They got it wrong. Again.
Proposition 64 is NOT Inevitable
