A majority of Californians voted "No" on Proposition 19 ( 1972 ) and Proposition 19 ( 2010 ). We also voted "Yes" on proposition 215 ( 1996 ).


California and the federal government are against cannabis commerce but we are in favor, by law, of private horticulture and noncommercial use through our medical program, and our federal government is respecting that.


The demographics are changing in California. At some point in the not too distant future, the "No" voters will lose at the polls over legalizing. Why not sponsor a preemptive noncommercial horticulture permit system initiative for all and defeat cannabis commerce in 2012 rather than gamble?


In the struggle over cannabis, both sides seem willing to gamble in 2012. The for-profit side is going to promote commerce again.


Why not find a middle way and legalize private noncommercial horticulture first?


As strange as it sounds I am asking the no people to sponsor an initiative in 2012 that legalizes private horticulture, use and noncommercial private trade for all California equally.


It's up to the no voters to lead or delay until their vote is the minority.
