Will California Marijuana Legalization Be on the Ballot in November 2016?
Yes, almost certainly. A number of ballot initiatives are collecting signatures, but the leader initiative is the “Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act,” which its proponents call AUMA. AUMA has significant financial support and, on February 4, 2016, it had already gathered 25% of the necessary signatures. (It’s deadline for signatures is not until July). No other legalization initiative has reached that 25% level, even though many them have been in the field gathering signatures for longer.
