We applaud the trend toward legalization and/or decriminalization of marijuana both for medical and recreational purposes. However, we oppose the increase in new laws and regulations that has accompanied this trend, whether such measures are intended as a back-door way to continue prohibition or are simply taking advantage of marijuana’s ambiguous legal status to achieve other goals. Specifically:

  1. We oppose measures enacted by the state or by local governments to limit the number of marijuana dispensaries or other businesses.
  2. We oppose the imposition of taxes or fees on marijuana cultivation or sale.
  3. We support the right of individuals to grow marijuana plants for their own use on their own property without regulation or taxation by any level of government.
