The Colbert Report and Prop 19

Well it seems that my Facebook Fan page for Marijuana Medicine Evaluation Centers paid off in a big way. As a fan of both The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report I make it a point to go to their FB fan page on a daily basis and post comments, stories, videos and such. Well it would appear that one of their writers got a hold of our website 

Marijuana Medicine Evaluation Centers

and saw the opening for a few jabs at the medical marijuana doctor / patient relationship.

While it seems they found humor in some of the items one could receive a medical marijuana recommendation for they seemed to focus most of their comical attention on the fact that the necessity for Prop 19 has been undermined by Governor Schwarzenegger opting to signed Senate Bill 1449which reduces adult marijuana possession charges from a criminal misdemeanor to a civil infraction.

Senate Bill 1449 amends the California Health and Safety Code so that the adult possession of up to 28.5 grams of marijuana is classified as an infraction, punishable by no more than a $100 fine — no court appearance, no court costs, and no criminal record.

The new law, which takes effect on Jan 1, 2011, will have an effect even if Californians vote to legalize marijuana by passing Prop 19. Proposition 19 leaves misdemeanor possession penalties in place for public use and smoking in the presence of children; under SB 1449, these offenses would be simple infractions.

    After six years of limiting medicinal cannabis dispensaries to four, Oakland city officials are poised to double that cap. Along with new legislation that would increase the number of licensed clubs to eight, the Oakland Public Safety Committee voted unanimously Oct. 12 to double the annual fees paid by the dispensaries from $30,000 to $60,000
