Ammiano Pot Legalization Measure Dies

A historic pot legalization measure authored by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano has died in the Assembly after the San Francisco legislator was unable to move it through a key committee before a Friday deadline. The death of the measure came after the bill squeaked out of the Assembly Public Safety Committee on a 4-3 vote yesterday. It was the first time that a marijuana legalization measure passed a state or federal legislative committee in U.S. history, Ammiano told the CoCo Times.
