California pot advocates are taking another stab at legalization with a proposed measure that would dictate pot growers be regulated in the same way as microbrewers and vintners.

The Regulate Marijuana Like Wine Act of 2012 has been certified, which means that backers can begin gathering the more than half-million signatures they’d need to put it before voters.
