California: Oakland City Council Endorses Statewide Pot Depenalization Initiative

Oakland, CA—(ENEWSPF)—May 21, 2010. Oakland city council members voted this week in favor of a resolution endorsing the Regulate, Control, and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010 – a statewide November ballot measure.

The measure seeks to allow adults 21 years or older to possess and cultivate marijuana for personal use. It would also permit local governments the option to authorize the retail sale and commercial cultivation of cannabis to adults. Personal marijuana cultivation or not-for-profit sales of marijuana would not be taxed under the measure.

City officials voted eight to zero in favor of the resolution. Oakland is the first city to formally endorse the proposal.
