California’s largest doctors group backs recreational marijuana legalization plan.

Doctors with the California Medical Association announce support of marijuana legalization, saying that regulation would serve public health better than 'ineffective prohibition'. The California initiative would allow anyone age 21 or older to purchase up to an ounce of marijuana and grow up to six pot plants. An excise tax of 15 percent would be imposed on all non-medical sales.

Pot.Ca recommends a 2 phase approach towards Legalization.
1. Stop the arrests now thru a ministerial letter or another method.

Marijuana Makes Me Elevated, Not High.

"It's about getting myself out of the way and letting the ideas flow," says Charles, "not every time - but when it works, it works well." Charles (whose name has been changed) is an Oxford-trained philosopher and good friend discussing the effect of cannabis on his writing. Between "straight" and "high" there is a zone we might call "elevated." It's where all parts of the brain are lit up, firing on all cylinders, so to speak, but one is able to direct the bliss into something worthwhile, important and satisfying. "When I return to [what I've written] the next day, or days later," Charles continues, "I'm pleased to discover that I can use maybe 75 percent of it." Cannabis doesn't interfere, says Charles, rather, it "facilitates the flow of ideas from my head to my fingers."
