I made a wiki for legalization at http://legalizationwiki.org. Even though Obama has stated he’s not in favor of legalization, the buzz on legalization has been growing out of control since his election. In March, California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano introduced a <a href=”http://legalizationwiki.org/Ammiano_Bill_AB_390″>bill proposing the legalization of marijuana</a> in his state. Since that introduction, legislators and newspapers in a number of other states have begun to call for legalization.
Though well intentioned, even the Ammiano bill is frought with language influenced by Drug War hysteria. My intention in creating the legalization wiki is to try and head off bad legislation at the pass, so to speak, and to provide a resource for those involved in creating or critiquing legislation on legalization that will appear in the near future.
