Marijuana legalization: Legalize 2012 objects to Regulate Marijuana Like Wine Act Name - Westword | 8 Jul 11: http://blogs.westword.com/latestword/2011/07/marijuana_legalization_legalize_2012_regulate_marijuana_like_alcohol_act.php

0:24 - Marijuana Project - Proposition 19 in Perspective - Greenberg Quinlan Research | 4 Nov 2010: http://www.greenbergresearch.com/index.php?ID=2538 The only poll that draws any conclusion regarding how marijuana smokers/legalization supporters felt about Prop. 19. 31% of those who voted against Prop. 19 supported legalizing marijuana or reducing marijuana penalties.

0:29 - Despite rejecting Prop. 19, Californians leand toward legalizing marijuana, poll finds: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010/11/despite-rejecting-proposition-19-post-election-poll-finds-californians-still-lean-toward-legalizing-.html.

Among voters who opposed Prop. 19, 31% said they believe marijuana should be legalized or penalties reduced, but they objected to the some specifics of the initiative.

The poll did not probe what it was about the measure that did not appeal to these voters. “Among the no votes, we’re seeing a significant proportion who we believe will ultimately support marijuana legalization in the future,” Nadelmann said.

See how Nadelmann spins the data to argue that Prop. 19 was too liberal rather than too restrictive and draconian. Bill Panzer regarding Prop. 19, The real debate over California's Proposition 19: http://palmspringsbum.org/blog/2010/10/the-real-debate-over-californias-proposition-19/

Ethan Nadelman and NORML are moving the goalpost out of the ballpark. Instead of sponsoring the Jack Herer Initative: http://www.cchhi2012.org, they promote thinly veiled prohibition such as Prop. 19 and plant marijuana money trees in Times Square.

0:37 - 64% said they would vote for Prop. 215 if it were on the November 2010 ballot. 50% believe marijuana should be made legal. 40% believe it should not be legal. During previous election 49% believed marijuana should be legal and 40% believe it should not be legal, a 1% increase for the legal side over the previous election.

0:40 - Rancho Cordova passed an ordinance charging $15,000 per year to license a 25 square foot personal medical marijuana grow in anticipation of Prop. 19 passing. To date it has not been challenged and is still on the books: http://ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php/Rancho_Cordova_Marijuana_Tax,_Measure_H_(November_2010)

0:43 - When growing unsexed marijuana plants in fields at the University of Mississippi, 42% of the females remain unfertilized. The production cost of marijuana - palmspringsbum | 20 Apr 11: http://palmspringsbum.org/blog/2010/04/the-production-cost-of-marijuana/

0:45 - In LA Times article, Nadelmann does not address the 31% who support legalization yet voted against Prop. 19. This appears to be party of a nation strategy to move the goalpost out of the ballpark, so that no one will consider seriously anything more liberal, more far-reaching, than Prop. 19.

0:51 - Legalize 2012 says it's misleading to call the MPP/DPA/Sensible Safer intiative The Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act of 20120. Further, they say: "We ask that reporters refrain from using the term "legalization" to refer to the MPP/DPA/Sensible/SAFER initiative, as the proponents themselves have said clearly that their initiative is NOT legalization. Since Legalize 2012 is working on a "true legalization" ballot initiative for 2012, the MPP/DPA/Sensible/SAFER proponents agreed Legalize 2012.com should be able to "own that term."

0:58 - Colorado Springs has 100 dispensaries with a population in 2010 of 416,427. Oakland has 28 with a population of 390,724.

1:06 - Marijuana: Great Legalization Debate quickly goes to pot - Westword | 23 Jun 11: http://blogs.westword.com/latestword/2011/06/medical_marijuana_great_legalization_debate_pot.php Soros has provided no money "for Tvert's effort".

1:10 - Feds Threaten Experimental Pot Program in Mendocino - The California Report | 8-10 Jul 11: http://www.californiareport.org/archive/R201107081630/b Mendocino is issuing licenses to cultivate up to 99 plants for $10,000. Matt Cohen, who holds one of these licenses, claims a single plant can yield 15 pounds. If that is correct, they would be making millions a year off their $10,000 license. The taxes they pay will be used to get rid of their competition, the unlicensed growers. The article states 70 people in Mendocino have paid $10,000 each for these licenses. That adds up to $700,000.
