@Tom, hmm did I miss something since 1913 ?!?! The California legislature began the prohibition of Cannabis in 1913, before the feds ever got involved. Most of that was due to racist reasons without any public comment or understanding of Cannabis. I say, if it can be prohibited by the State, it can be unprohibited by the State.
I don't know that Prop. 215 has turned into a bit of a joke. Tell that to medical users and see what they think. I suspect some people are taking advantage of it, but that doesn't dismiss the positive effects for medical users.
Just as Oakland will allow for manufacturers to produce Cannabis, so can other cities. This is no different than the Wine Industry. Do police normally go into bars checking for IDs?? NO. That's left for the business to perform. Anyplace Beer, Wine, or Liquor is sold, Cannabis could be sold. This isn't rocket science.
