Yes on 64 announced the ads in a press release this week:

  1. I agree to a point. If regulated like alcohol, let it NOT be controled and regulated by the A.B.C.
    It is proven in every state with a Alcohol Board, corruption within, political appointed.
    Regulate from within the community,growers, providers and those who depend for medical reason staff the commission.
    I am familiar and have spoken before city councils, supervisors etc on this and other concerns on this matter and others that arise in regard to this important issue.
