LA DA Challenges Jerry Brown to Reject Title and Summary of California’s Marijuana Ballot Initiative

The Metropolitan News-Enterprise reports:

Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley has called on Attorney General Jerry Brown not to approve the title and summary of an initiative to legalize marijuana that will appear on the November ballot.

Cooley, one of three candidates vying for the Republican nomination to replace Brown, yesterday announced his opposition to “The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010” and criticized the title and summary prepared by Brown’s office last September.

“The marijuana initiative is terribly misleading, poorly drafted and not in the best interests of California residents,” he said in a written statement. “It will not regulate, not control nor effectively tax marijuana in California.”
