The Press Democrat, 17 Jul 2015 – The march to bring marijuana legalization before California voters in 2016 ramped up Thursday with the announcement by a group of longtime Bay Area cannabis advocates that they have hired heavy-hitting Democratic political strategists and plan to release a draft of the proposed initiative in the coming weeks. Santa Rosa-based attorney Joe Rogoway is part of a team with the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform that is crafting an initiative under a project dubbed ReformCA, backed by California NORML – the state branch of the national marijuana reform group – that would create a framework for a “robust set of regulations” to legalize cannabis for use by adults while maintaining regulations already in place for medical use.
