CALIFORNIA radio stations may be taking a hit off a new advertising source. CBS RADIO News KNX-A/LOS ANGELES is reporting that radio and TV spots will light up the airwaves today in support of the legalization of pot in LOS ANGELES and SAN FRANCISCO.
CALIFORNIA was the first to legalize medical marijuana 15 years ago, now the state could become the first to make it legal for recreational use as well.
CALIFORNIA has decided to put it to a vote in NOVEMBER, when an initiative will be on the ballot to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. The measure would allow adults over 21 to buy up to an ounce and grow small amounts, though they wouldn't be able to use it in public or near minors.
The Tax Cannabis Act, as it's called, would let local governments collect on every marijuana sale. An APRIL 2009 statewide poll showed 56% of CALIFORNIA voters support legalizing and taxing marijuana.
