    Questions
    DrugWarRant / Pete Guither / 09,08,2010


    Someone sent me a link to a blog. Now, it’s pretty rare that I mention a blog that has only one post so far, but it’s a pretty big post. The blog is Prop 19 Questions and the first post has… 850 questions. (I’m taking their word for it, I haven’t counted them myself.)
    There are some good questions, and I actually started answering them, but after about 35, I got bored.

    There are a bunch that can easily be answered “No” or “Yes” just through plain reading of the text of the proposed law. There’s also a large number that would be answered “depending on local regulations,” and a few where the answer would be “Yeah, lawyers are going to make some money on that one.”

    But there’s also a considerable number where the answer is “Nobody knows. Just as with any new law or policy, we’ll have to see what happens and adapt to situations as they arise.”

    After reading all the questions, I realized that there are some questions that have been left out!
    So here are my additions to the 850 questions about Prop 19


    1. If a major earthquake causes California to fall into the Pacific Ocean, will people be allowed to grow marijuana in domed undersea gardens as long as they’re 25 square feet or less?
    2. If I put a tesseract on my 5′ by 5′ plot, can I then grow 25 square feet of marijuana in all four dimensions?
    3. If the earth is hit by a meteor and speeds up its orbit so that it goes around the sun in half the time, will the minimum age of 21 for using marijuana still be in effect, but allow young people to get there sooner?
    4. If you liquify your marijuana, is your one ounce allowance based on weight or by volume? What if it’s pre-vaporized and has almost no weight?
    5. If a medical marijuana patient has fun consuming their medical marijuana, do they fall under medical marijuana laws or recreational marijuana laws?

    Prop 19 Questions

    Prop 19 Questions


    I created this blog because I have many questions about what will happen if Proposition 19 passes in California. I hope to stimulate discussion on this issue and I welcome answers, opinions, and additional questions from anyone and everyone. If Proposition 19 passes, I think this blog will still to be useful to answer questions or discuss ongoing developments.
    September 5, 2010

    Initial questions

    The vote on Proposition 19 is less than two months away. I have a lot of questions about what might happen if Prop19 passes or fails. Right now I'm just brainstorming. I don't intend these questions to generate fear, uncertainty and doubt. I just hope that people imagine/consider possible scenarios and consequences if Prop 19 passes. If you laugh at some of these questions, please don't dismiss all of them. You can guarantee that criminals, homegrowers, corporations will look for loopholes in the law, and cops, lawyers, and judges will look for inconsistencies. What's the worse that could happen? What should local governments prepare for and expect? There are 850 questions below.

    Will homegrowers be able to grow (and keep) as much as they can in 25 square feet every month? Will the 25 square feet limits be enacted statewide? Can it be grown in plain view of the public? Will there be any cities/counties where it will be illegal to grow at home? What if cops see a minor tending a homegrow? Will medical growers be restricted to 25 square feet? Will any recreational homegrowers/sellers use medical marijuana cards as an excuse to grow in spaces larger than 25 square feet? Does harvesting count as processing? Will gangs and cartels take advantage of legal grow limits? Will they hire/employ more homegrowers? Can someone have 5 lbs of purchased weed inside their house as long as they also buy some plants to make it look like they're a personal grower? Will possession limits apply to only bud or also leaves, stems, seeds? Will possession limits only apply to the percentage of psychoactive chemicals in a bag of marijuana?

    Is "any harvest" some sort of unlimited loophole? Can someone convert a grain tower silo into a 5' W x 5' L x 50' H vertical grow op for "personal consumption"? A 5' diameter bush outside that's 12' tall? 25 single-cola 8' plants growing outside trimmed to each fit in its own one square foot area? Does the 25 square feet have to be in one single area? Could someone have two 2x2 grows? What if someone has a larger grow space than 25 square feet but there are is under 25 square feet of plants growing in it at the time? If someone owns multiple parcels of land, can they have 5x5 personal grows on each one? Can landowners subdivide existing land into smaller parcels to have more personal grow spaces? Can there be a grow on every level of an apartment fire escape? Will people convert entire floors of apartment buildings or motels into residential grow ops to compete with commercial growers? Will landlords pay tenants to grow in their apartments? Will people set up cubicles in loft apartments to take advantage of residence grow limits? Will people convert capsule hotels to take advantage of residence grow limits?

    Will there be more indoor or outdoor industrial commercial growers? Will outdoor commercial growers use greenhouses more than open-air growing to prevent fertilization of female plants? Will indoor or outdoor industrial growers produce more? Will indoor or outdoor growers use pesticides? Will an increase in indoor homegrows and industrial grows increase the chance of blackouts? Will indoor commercial growers in certain areas be restricted to certain hours when they can turn their lights on to prevent blackouts? Will the power grid in California be able to handle the demand? Will California have to build more peaking power plants? Will there be restrictions on exhaust in commercial and home grows? Will exhaust systems no longer be needed in homegrows?

Will it be legal to burn stems and leaves and waste plant matter in power plants? Will there be a market for plant waste/cellulose? How can it be used? How can it be transported? How must commercial cannabis waste be disposed of? Will industrial growers burn their own waste? Sell it? Will cannabis stems and leaves become a major source of biomass? Can it be used to make biofuel? Fermented to make methanol?

    Will there be an increase in electrical fires related to homegrows? Will fire departments have to hire more people to combat more electrical fires? Will there be special procedures in dealing with homegrow fires? Industrial marijuana fires? If a commercial crop is ruined somehow, how must the cannabis be disposed of? Will there be weed farm/factory inspectors? Will there be some sort of stamp of approval? Will it fall under FDA or USDA jurisdiction? Will the FDA have to approve cannabis products or will it be classified as an herb? Will the California Department of Public Health inspect retail weed stores?

    If Proposition 19 passes I think there will be an explosion in the number of weed stores, weed bakeries, weed cafes, smoking bars, hydro stores, grow supply stores, weed clothing companies, seed companies, breeders, glass blowers, 5x5 tent manufacturers, souvenir/poster/novelty item makers, tourist shops, tourist traps, etc. Can a 16-year-old be a cashier in any of them? Will you have to be 21 to even enter? Will under-21 employees at California medical dispensaries be laid off?

Will many current medical dispensaries will just change their sign and become retail weed stores? Will people be allowed to form and sell out of co-ops?

    Will every city and county in California approve retail weed stores? Will there still be black markets in California? Will some buyers stay loyal to their former marijuana dealers?

    If Propositon 19 passes, will it later be seen as ceding power to corporations? As a step backwards? Will it create Big Weed? Will Big Weed be demonized like Big Tobacco? When's the last time non-shareholders and non-politicians and non-addicts praised Big Tobacco? Will there be lawsuits against Big Weed? Will existing agricultural corporations take over marijuana in California? Will existing pharmaceutical companies take over?

    Will cities allow cannabis churches in their communities? Will there be a rise in new cannabis cults, new age religions, or self-proclaimed gurus? Is the concept of cannabis spirituality diametrically opposed to cannabis corporatization? Has anyone ever felt spiritual after buying something from a corporation?

    Will corporatization of marijuana create potential public health problems such as foodborne illnesses? Will sanitation be ignored as long as the cannabis is burned when consumed? Could there be any E. coli outbreaks related to commercially grown marijuana? Could nearby cattle or pig ranches contaminate irrigation water near outdoor marijuana fields? Could marijuana field workers introduce diseases onto crops through unsanitary handling practices? Could mechanical harvesters introduce petroleum products onto crops or soil? Could mold or mildew or pesticides on commercially grown marijuana pose lung problems? Could commercial curing processes introduce pathogens? Will there ever be any weed recalls?

    Will Prop 19 affect pregnant women in any way? Fetuses? Will secondhand marijuana smoke pose a risk to anyone? Will Prop 19 lead to an increase of cannabis research grants? Will colleges begin offering new courses related to marijuana? New degrees?

    How much will usage rise? How many tons of marijuana will California produce in the first year after Proposition 19 passes?

    If Proposition 19 passes, how will tobacco usage in California be affected? How will alcohol usage in California be affected? Will weed affect tobacco prices? Will criminal organizations or the DEA drop or fog defoliants or herbicides on commercial outdoor marijuana grows? Will commercial growers themselves use herbicides on their marijuana crops to control weeds? Will rival companies or law enforcement or moles or monkeywrenchers introduce male pollen onto sensimilla crops, perhaps by airplane or ventilation systems? Will all large-scale outdoor marijuana farms naturally produce pollinated females? Will this leave a demand for sensimilla on the black market? Will commercial weed be looked down upon as "that seedy shit"? Will homegrowers who are employed on weed farms or in weed factories accidentally or perhaps intentionally introduce male pollen onto sensimilla crops? Will indoor weed factory employees be required to wear cleanroom suits to prevent accidental fertilization by male pollen? How often will employees steal seeds or cuttings? If an employee is stealing weed or seeds or cuttings and is discovered, will they just be fired or will other state/federal laws apply?

    Will people be allowed to carry up to one ounce of weed in California airports? Will the TSA ramp up screening for weed in California airports? Will obviously stoned passengers be allowed on commercial flights leaving California? Will California airports allow cannabis smoking/vaping bars? Will pilots be allowed to enter them?

Will limos or cabs allows marijuana smoking/vaporizing in the back?

    What if a guy gets pulled over for speeding on the way to Nevada, 3 miles from the border and admits to there being 10 lbs of weed in the trunk. Does the oz possession limit no longer apply to him because he claims he "harvested it for personal consumption"? Does the possession limit not apply to him because he's not carrying those 10lbs on his person? What if he also has a gun in the car? Is he in violation of the law simply because he's transporting over one ounce of weed? What if he claims he's a medical grower delivering to a medical dispensary in Nevada (or California) and is a caregiver and shows his MMJ card? What if a homeowner with a 5x5 grow has a gun in the house? Will people with concealed carry permits be allowed to bring firearms into weed stores or onto weed farms/factories?

    Is letting each city and county decide its own laws meant to encourage people to support Proposition 19 or is it meant to generate chaos so that statewide uniform regulation will be enacted? Will a website have to be set up explaining the varying laws from city to city? Will the varying laws create pockets of black market opportunities? Will police departments be stressed by a societal sea change? If Proposition 19 passes, can it be reversed and if so how soon? If it is reversed, will it hurt the chances of other future initiatives in California or initiatives in other states?

    Will weed prices drop? How much money will local governments be able to collect in taxes and fees? Will any tax money be collectible seeing as how buying/selling/possessing marijuana is still against federal law? Will a drop in price affect the amount cities can collect in taxes? If cities put tax rates too high, will people just buy on the untaxed black market?

    Proposition 19 won't legalize marijuana. Possession and transport over one ounce will still be illegal. Possession under one ounce has only been a $100 fine for years in California. Every transaction over one ounce is still black market. How often do drug cartels transport under one ounce now? How much of each cartels' profits come from selling under one ounce within California alone? If someone wants to buy more than one ounce, who will be selling it?

    Proposition 19 does nothing regarding prohibition in other states. Weed will be legal to grow and buy in California, yet be illegal in surrounding states. A black market will still exist. Drug cartels might no longer have to worry about smuggling marijuana into California from Mexico or Canada. Will smuggling from Mexico into Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico increase? Will smuggling from California to Oregon, Nevada, and Arizona dramatically increase? Will smuggling from retail weed cities to non-retail weed cities increase?

    Will drug violence along the Mexican border shift to the US states bordering California as gangs/cartels fight over turf? Will California become a safe haven for marijuana growing/distributing? Will Los Angeles become the #1 hard drug hub in North America? How long until the first stabbing or shooting near a weed store? How often will weed stores be robbed? How often will homegrowers be robbed? How long before the first burglary of a major commercial grow facility? Will there be arson of commercial weed facilities? Will there be wildfires due to gangs torching corporate fields? Will gangs employ rippers to steal from corporate fields? How often will people be robbed on the street for their legally purchased weed? Will people currently imprisoned for growing under one ounce be released? Will there be prison riots as people incarcerated for marijuana crimes get angry over their non-release? Will marijuana be considered contraband in prisons? Will public marijuana smoking be illegal statewide? Will vaporizing in public be lawful? What if people carry smoking/vaping equipment in brown paper bags?

    Will previously law abiding citizens start buying low in California and selling high in other US states in order to capitalize on Proposition 19? Will out-of-state trafficking dramatically increase? Will stopping out-of-state shipments fall largely upon California law enforcement, state officers in surrounding states at the borderline, or federal agents? Will permanent checkpoints be set up on all major roads leaving California? Will criminal organizations burglarize weed stores? Kill growers? Take over businesses? Create protection rackets? Hijack commercial weed shipments? Fight over drug turf in California and elsewhere?

    Will Proposition 19 cripple drug cartels? Will cartels smuggle less marijuana from Mexico to California? Will Proposition 19 only affect marijuana shipments from the Tijuana cartel? Will other cartels be largely unaffected? I've read that the Beltran-Levya cartel also has territory in California and the Gulf cartel uses Los Angeles as a major distribution hub. Will LA become an even bigger global distribution hub? Will drug cartels increase other criminal activity? Will cartels give up marijuana smuggling into the US altogether? Will cartels increase their efforts on smuggling from California into Nevada and Oregon and Arizona? Will they prefer car, truck, motorcycle, plane, tunnel, bus, or something else? Will there be cartel massacres within California or surrounding states?

    Will smuggling out of California on ships increase? Will inspection of ships leaving California increase? Will inspection of ships entering other countries increase? Will California export more marijuana to foreign countries and islands? Will cartels operate commercial grows in California for plane/ship/submarine distribution worldwide? Will there be turf wars over ports? Will existing gangs or cartels bribe people in commercial grows to alter production numbers and redirect shipments? Will corporate weed be reported as ruined or destroyed but ends up on the black market? Will workers in commercial grows form their own drug gangs to steal product for resale in black markets? How will cities/counties know that all of the marijuana produced by a company is being sold only in retail stores in-state?
