Prop 64

Marijuana Legalization. Initiative Statute

This initiative legalizes marijuana and hemp under state law for adult usage. The proposition lays out a regulatory plan for the industry and would impose a state tax on retail sales of marijuana equal to 15 percent of sales price. It also authorizes resentencing and destruction of records for prior marijuana convictions.

Bottomline: The Chamber OPPOSES this proposition because to date, there are no reliable, established protocols to determine levels of “under the influence.” This would create tremendous liability and uncertainty for employers in hiring and supervision.
