MARIJUANA USE. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Proposes enactment of a statute providing that adults, 18 years or older, shall not be punished criminally, be denied any right or privilege, or be subject to any permit or license requirement, for past or present private possession, cultivation or transportation of marijuana for personal use, nor shall licensed physicians be penalized for medical use of marijuana. Also provides for amnesty and clearing of criminal records for all acts which are no longer illegal under this enactment. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: The measure would have an undetermined fiscal impact on State and local governments. The initiative may result in undetermined savings to State and local governments due to a reduction in law enforcement efforts and incarceration. The extent to which savings would be realized is indeterminable due to lack of data on the amount of resources dedicated to such enforcement activity and incarceration. State and local governments could incur unknown additional costs to destroy criminal records. Some of these costs would be potentially offset by fees allowed under existing law. The measure could result in an undetermined reduction in State and local government revenues from fines and penalty assessments levied for violations of existing marijuana laws.
