A top Republican candidate vying for the office of attorney general in California wants to make marijuana legal for recreational use in California.

 

Ron Gold says marijuana should be legal for adults for any reason so it can be regulated and taxed, and the state can use the revenue for projects like education and drug/alcohol counseling. Gold says Colorado’s legalization model has worked well and also shown that marijuana can provide a sufficient tax base for state projects.

 

Current attorney general Kamala Harris says recreational marijuana is an evolving subject and that if anything, it should be put to a vote of the people before government takes on the issue of recreational legalization.

 

In Washington and Colorado, marijuana is legal for any adult to use, although smoking outdoors and in public is not allowed, even though most police officers no longer write citations for it. In California, smoking marijuana is prohibited anywhere that smoking cigarettes is prohibited, and marijuana faces additional restrictions in parks and near schools and other areas where children may be present.

 

Many advocacy groups recommend using medical marijuana only in private residences and keeping all marijuana-related items out of sight when in public, since marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia use or possession is still grounds for reasonable search under federal law.
