Sounds to me like California has not really “legalized.” IF they legalized how do you have illegal growers?
Fact of the matter is that “legalization” is a joke, and it has not happened anywhere in the United States as of yet.
The usurpers had no more right to criminalize than they do to legalize. We are born with all rights, government exists to protect those rights, not to trample them. Not to dole them out to us.
The “dangers” that this article refers to are laughable. The real dangers are those that the police present to our liberties. Our right to contract, our rights to our bodies, and our right to grow anything we darn please, for starters, and we don’t need “permission” to do any of them. Any law that tramples these rights is IMHO null, and void on it’s face. Both the first amendment, and jury nullification give us peaceful ways to fight tyranny before being forced to go to what Jefferson called “watering the tree of liberty”.
