Calif. Assemblyman Wants To Legalize, Tax Marijuana

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A state legislator is reviving the debate about legalizing marijuana as a way of raising money for cash-strapped state and local governments.

Assemblyman Tom Ammiano introduced a bill yesterday that if approved by the California Legislature would put marijuana on the same legal footing as alcohol. Adults over the age of 21 would be allowed to buy it, while driving under the influence of marijuana would be prohibited.
