California has six cannabis reform initiatives competing to qualify for the 2012 ballot. 

Repeal Cannabis Prohibition Act of 2012

With a static web site listing 4 changes this bill would make, I found the information to be “generic” and understated.  The four items noted are:
1. Repeals all criminal prohibitions and penalties on cannabis related conduct for adults, 19 and over
2. Mandates strict rules against unlawful distribution to and by minors, driving impaired.
The “driving impaired” clause has had opponents in many states, as the testing for cannabis intoxication is imperfect, and many of these bills require blood or urine tests to determine the “level of intoxication”.  The issue should be driving under “impairment”, which can be determined through standard road-side tests, and should not require the collection of blood or urine
3. Maintains medical rights for patients under Prop 215 and SB 420
4. Vests the newly created California Cannabis Commission with the regulation of commercial cannabis
