Proposition 19 and marijuana: Some marijuana tax revenue is better than none - latimes.com

Proposition 19 and marijuana: Some marijuana tax revenue is better than none - latimes.com

The drug czar says that, like duties on alcohol and tobacco, the Prop. 19 marijuana tax wouldn't offset the substance's societal costs. He ignores the fact that cannabis is a safer drug.



It is no surprise that America's present and former drug czars oppose the passage of Proposition 19, the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Initiative of 2010. After all, the drug czar is required by law "to oppose any attempt to legalize the use of a substance that is listed in schedule I of section 202 of the Controlled Substances Act." In other words, it would actually be illegal for President Obama's drug czar, Gil Kerlikowske, to voice an opinion that didn't publicly condemn the measure.
