Proposition 64 would legalize marijuana under state law, for use by adults 21 or older. It would impose state taxes on sales and cultivation, provide for industry licensing, establish standards for marijuana products and allow local regulation and taxation.
A yes vote on this measure means: Adults 21 years of age or older could legally grow, possess, and use marijuana for nonmedical purposes, with certain restrictions. The state would regulate nonmedical marijuana businesses and tax the growing and selling of medical and nonmedical marijuana. Most of the revenue from such taxes would support youth programs, environmental protection, and law enforcement.
