A proposal to tax and regulate marijuana "may be in the stars" says the leader of a group dedicated to changing drug laws.
Dave Schwartz, manager of the Marijuana Policy Project of Nevada says the group will make an announcement on the subject Wednesday in front of the Clark County Government Center in Las Vegas.
“Residents of this great state know we have been pushing for more sensible marijuana laws in this state for some time now,” Schwartz said in a written statement. “We are excited to be launching the next step in this journey and look forward to working with supporters all across Nevada. For too long, we have accepted laws that allow adults to use alcohol freely, but punish them if the choose to use a less harmful substance, marijuana. Our marijuana laws simply don’t make sense and it is time to enact a new system.”
