CRIMINALIZED DRUG LAWS. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Repeals all laws prohibiting the use, cultivation, transportation, or possession of criminalized drugs, in any form. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would provide an unknown net savings for state and local costs due to a redirection and reduction of existing state and local law enforcement activities related to drug violations. There would be unknown savings to state and local governments, probably in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually, to the extent that violators of drug laws would be jailed in federal, rather than state or local government facilities; unknown increased state and local drug treatment and related program costs, to the extent reduced enforcement activity results in increased drug usage; and unknown reduction in state and local revenues due to the elimination of fines.
