AirTalk WITH LARRY MANTLE:

LEGALIZING POT? CALIFORNIA VOTERS CHOOSE

Supporters say it's safer than alcohol or tobacco and improves quality of life. Detractors call it a gateway drug rife with health risks. This November, California voters will get to decide if marijuana should be legalized for recreational use in California. Would marijuana tax revenues help balance the state budget? Would a legal trade in marijuana reduce the influence of cartels or blight neighborhoods with storefront pot shops? And could the ballot measure stand up to a federal challenge?

Hon. James P. Gray (ret.)

Judge Gray, a retired judge with over twenty nine years service on the bench, has been active in a number of community causes, including Mothers Against Drunk Driving. He is the author of Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed and What We Can Do About It, A Judicial Indictment of the War on Drugs.

Hon. John Russo

John Russo won the voters' nod as Oakland's first elected City Attorney in 2000 and was re-elected in 2004. In has served as President of the League of California Cities spearheading initiatives regarding tax revenues and to amend California's Constitution to ensure public access to government records and decision-making.

Hon. Lee D. Baca

Sheriff Baca commands the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, the largest such department in the United States. He earned his doctorate in public administration from USC. He was first elected sheriff in 1998 and has been re-elected twice.

 




6/16/2010
  Judge Gray will debate Sheriff Lee Baca of Los Angeles on the upcoming initiative to tax and regulate cannabis. The debate will be taped on Wed. 6/16/2010 with Larry Mantle at KPCC Pasadena and will air on 6/17/2010 on many NPR stations.

6/1/10 Stephen Frank's California Political News and Views book review of A Voter's Handbook:
"
Judge Jim Gray is a hero to those who believe in freedom."

5/30/ 2010   Judge Gray was elected to the Libertarian Judiciary Committee at the National Libertarian Convention in St. Louis
