    Well, letting prop 19 fail with 46.1% to 53.9% is not cool. You let the whole world down.

    BUT

    The people of this state have to be some of the most backwards hypocrites of all time. They always vote democrat regardless, even when the rest of the country swings back and forth. And even though they (or we) are hardcore liberals, still won't legalize, marijuana, gay marriage or gambling, don't support lowering taxes, and think that special interest will take care of them if they are police, firefighters, teachers etc.

    On the bright side, at least outside the state, the house and senate are a hell of a lot more balanced, and we might see some economic growth.

    it really wasn't that. Fucking MADD and a few others brought forth the argument of people driving under the influence and that the bill was not written correctly. Quotes that supposedly came from the proposition where actually from the assembly bill and in that stage was horribly written. So obviously the big advertisements against it was incorrect information, it scared people, making them think the bill was bad but still supported legalization. Unfortunate for them, they where reading the wrong bill.

    Sorry, prop 19 was fucking awfully written, regardless of what stage it was in. I support the legalization of marijuana, but I voted against it because it was shitty legislation.

    And yeah, it really was the lazy people who didn't vote - voter turnout of under 20% for the 18-24 age range is deplorable, at best.

    Why exactly?
    I read through it quickly a few days ago and couldn't find any no-go downsides.
    You're allowed to use a 5x5 feet space to grow
    Can own more than you can smoke
    No smoking allowed for minors
    etc.
    I don't see a problem, regarding the fact that they wanted to legalize it because of money it's a fair deal.
    If it would have been unlimited weed allowed etc. people would have been harder to convince and a legalization would never ever happen.

    A local radio DJ was arguing that he read the whole thing, and then telling people their opinions where wrong if they didn't read the whole thing. He claims that the proposition said you could not grow it yourself at all without fees, that you should be able to grow your own weed like you can make alcohol (what he didn't know is that you have to get a license to distill alcohol which is not cheap). That was hi whole argument for changing his mind because he seriously thought you could not grow your own without paying the 3 grand for the license and that the proposition would ruin dispensaries and the availability of medical marijuana for patients but had absolutely no evidence of that claim, and even now, I still have not seen any factual evidence supporting the proposition would harm cannabis patients and dispensaries.

    The only issue that I saw reading the whole proposition was that they did not map out how the revenue would be allocated, which with our state, means they would wastefully spend it as they do with all taxpayer dollars. However with proposition 25 going through, it would have combated the fact that they would have to include revenue allocations of marijuana in their budget.

    I hate California in general. I'm not quite sure why I haven't made more of an effort to leave...

    I'm not surprised it didn't pass. They should try to see how far that bill goes in Texas :lol:

    This. They didn't map out how it would be allocated or really collected in general, aside from giving counties the right to tax it.


    But really, if weed is legalized, I'm not sure it'd be that great. I can just see growers eventually asking for subsidizations because people expect cheap weed, or the cheep shitty weed from Mexico flooding the markets.
