.Oakland City Council, LEAP, Teachers’ Union Chief Endorse TaxCann 2010

The road to legalizing over-21 possession and cultivation of cannabis is a long and winding one whose true distance remains unknown. Last night, the Oakland City Council officially joined local businessman Richard Lee on that road by endorsing Tax Cannabis 2010. The endorsement joins the support of select police officers, teachers, and about 78,000 Facebook supporters. Diametrically opposed: narcotics enforcement associations, police chiefs associations, select growers in Northern California, and both radical and conservative elements of the drug law reform community itself.
