|Rob Kampia, shown here partying at the Playboy Mansion, doesn’t seem too concerned about getting a marijuana DUI. Oh yeah, those are only for Washington state, right?
Rob Kampia, executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based Marijuana Policy Project, published a Huffington Post column this week which included a chart supposedly illustrating “the Facts on I-502” which included an unintentionally humorous section.
Under “Arrests,” the chart tells us “If I-502 passes in WA on November 6th,” “NO ARRESTS,” and then in smaller print, “as long as you’re complying with the new law.” Gee, Rob, how many law degrees do you have, again?
It’s much the same with the rest of the chart. Under “Penalty for Wholesale Cultivation,” it’s “NO PENALTY if you have a marijuana producer’s license.” What the chart doesn’t tell you is that after an initial $250 setup fee, “marijuana producer’s licenses” will cost $1,000 per year (expect this number to go up quickly.)
Even the chart has to admit that the penalty for growing your own “Doesn’t change from current law. Manufacture becomes legal for licensed producers, not for home growers.”
