A national anti-marijuana coalition is facing $6,000 in fines for campaign finance violations in its opposition to Proposition, 64, a November ballot measure that legalized recreational use of cannabis in California.

The fines have been agreed to by SAM Action Inc., the political arm of Smart Approaches to Marijuana, an anti-legalization group founded by Kevin Sabet, a former drug policy advisor to the Obama administration.
