INITIATIVE STATUTE. MARIJUANA. Adds sections to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act stating that marijuana shall be considered an intoxicant alongside dry wine and shall be regulated as such by the Alcoholic Beverage Control agencies. Provides one ounce of marijuana shall be considered the equivalent of one gallon of dry wine. Modifies present statutory definition of marijuana. Repeals present statute listing marijuana as a controlled hallucinogenic substance. Repeals state statutes specifying offenses and penalties for every person who unlawfully possesses, possesses for sale, plants, cultivates, harvests, dries, processes, transports, imports, sells, furnishes, administers, or gives away marijuana. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure does not affect federal prohibitions against manufacturing, distributing, or dispensing marijuana. The measure, by itself, would result in a redirection of existing state and local law enforcement activities from marijuana to other activities with no net change in state or local costs. There may be savings in state and local incarceration costs. No change in state and local revenues.
