Proponents of California’s Cannabis Legalization Initiative Have Raised Over $11 Million

California's Cannabis LegalizationProponents of California’s Proposition 64 to legalize cannabis for everyone 21 and older have raised $11.5 million in support for their proposal, according to state data.

The initiative’s biggest donor is former Facebook President Sean Parker at $2,303,965, followed by Drug Policy Action at $1.75 million, the New Approach PAC at $1,500,000, Weedmaps at $750,000 and Nicholas Pritzker at $250,000.

The $11.5 million raised is over 60 times the amount raised by the largest group opposed to Proposition 64, No on Prop 64; they’ve raised under $200,000.

According to polling released earlier this month, 64% of voters in the state support legalizing cannabis.

If passed into law, Proposition 64 would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis, the personal cultivation of up to six cannabis plants, and would authorize state-licensed cannabis retail outlets.
