I am very happy that we are getting closer to legalizing weed, but A64 still kept criminal penalties in place, so it did not make weed legal. The law was written for business and tax revenue. Otherwise, they would have also freed those in jail for non-violent marijuana related laws. A-64 was created by the wealthy, for the wealthy. Mason, being as fat and gluttonous as he is, is a great spokeperson for the amendment. Afterall, he personifies the the sociopathic greed behind the law. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the financial backers of A64 also had stakes in the prison industrial complex, which would make sense considering the criminal penalties in place. Can't get rid of that gravy train! I know that's hyperbole, but let's call a spade a spade. If the intention was to legalize marijuana, then that is what it would have done. However, the law was to REGULATE marijuana, not legalize it.
