AUMA 64/60 is a grassroots organization comprised of individuals representing stakeholders from the full spectrum of communities and constituents impacted by the implementation of Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Initiative. “64” denotes the number assigned to the proposition placed on the ballot. ”60” represents California’s historic commitment to allocating 60% of all tax revenue derived from the implementation of the Youth Education, Prevention and Treatment account to build a youth treatment system for all Californians.
The organization includes representatives from addiction treatment, mental health, youth services, addiction medicine, primary care medicine, prevention, education, criminal justice and community organization fields. Each representative participates voluntarily to achieve the following goals:
- Prepare for the impact that legal, recreational use of marijuana will bring to communities.
- Provide a unified voice in making recommendations for allocating tax revenue from the initiative so that it benefits California’s citizens and achieves the goals intended by the proposition passed by the voters on November 8, 2016.
- Gather ideas and input from the best minds in California regarding prevention, education, and treatment for youth who are in need of addiction services in California in order to build a national model for creating a healthy youth population in relation to substance use.
Meetings of the 64/60 Committee are open to the public and input from all organizations is encouraged. Several subcommittees also meet individually to dissect major tenants of the legislation and to make recommendations to the full committee.
