California Gets Ready for Legal Marijuana

New regulations on growth, transport, and sale of cannabis anticipates a 2016 ballot initiative.


California set the stage for marijuana legalization as the first state in America to legalize the drug for medical use. Last October, the Golden State passed a series of laws that will create a regulatory system for recreational cannabis if voters make it legal in 2016.

Reason TV travelled to Oaksterdam University, the nation's premier cannabis cultivation school, where many of the political activists pushing an upcoming ballot initiative held a meeting to finalize language and debate some of the finer points of legalization.
