Tom Ammiano Tries, Tries Again With Marijuana Bill

Everybody knows California is broke, and those same everybodies know that thar's a gold mine waiting to be unearthed — when and if the state starts taxing adult-use recreational marijuana (everybody *could* also be wrong, but that's another story).

There are no shortage of needy projects across the state in desperate need of money: schools, health care, roads. But should Proposition 19 pass in November, tax revenue from marijuana sales would go to fund “drug education and awareness programs” only, under legislation introduced Thursday by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco.
