Ballot Initiative - The case for a marijuana measure

I haven't found the text yet, though I know I saw it before the
election and may have it in email somewhere. Meanwhile, here is a site
that has a couple pro and con pieces on Measure Z:

  Interestingly, the anti-Z piece paints a more attractive picture of
the measure from a libertarian perspective. As long as we keep the
broad outlines of our measure the same as the one that passed in
Oakland and copy enough of the language so that we can say our
initiative is based on Oakland's with a few minor changes, we can
probably get away with changing a few details, such as the part
establishing a government committee to study the issue, without too
many harmful consequences.

Where can we find the text of the Oakland initiative?

I'd like to throw my support behind the marijuana
measure. Although I agree with Michael E's assessment
of the curb rights as a clearer Libertarian issue, I
think our ability to acquire 10,000 sigs for that
effort would be more than challenging. I know of at
least 60 people right now that would sign a marijuana
reform petition without batting an eye. Curb rights
would require a lengthly explanation. (tried it on my
roommates as a test)

In the event we only got 9500 sigs for curb rights,
the not only would the petition effort essentially be
wasted but we would have zero PR impact on the SF
community.

Of course I will support either effort, but if we go
with the marijuana one, I will pledge to personally
gather 500 signatures towards the effort. If curb
rights are chosen I will have to diminish that pledge
to 100 as a matter of practicality.
