Jim Gray: Voters Wanted To Regulate Pot Like Wine?

As blogger Dennis Romero at our sister paper, the LA Weekly, points out, Gray's proposal would force the state of California to protect pot smokers from those nasty federal drug agents who are stepping up their enforcement efforts, and would prohibit cities from limiting the number of dispensaries or delivery services.
Romero argues that Gray is a whack job because it would make Calfornia's pot industry even more unregulated than, for example, wine. Actually, Dennis, the word isn't "wacky," it's "libertarian," and Orange County, which if you recall, voted in favor of Prop. 19, is crawling with them. According to the Orange County Register, Gray will unveil his so-called "Regulate Marijuana Like Wine Act of 2012" at a Sept. 1 fundraiser in Newport Beach.
