Oh thank gawd the voters took pleasure away from the their fellow citizens. It wouldn't seem like a facist state without it. I never looked at the numbers. Are the MJ supporters gaining at all? Conade the destroyer did take the wind out of the MJ haters sail, and repealed the MJ misdemeaner law, making possession a MJ Ticket fine of $100. Leave my Margaritas alone!!
Pot legalization measure defeat in THE MOST LIBERAL STATE IN THE UNION was a clear message.
In 2010 the AMA's position that Cannabis is a schedule 1 drug was removed from the DEA's mandate, the FDA formally requested that Cannabis be declassifed and California was the first state to have a ballot measure to legalize Cannabis. 14 states allow Medical Marijuana and another 7 have legislation pending. Many other states have "de-criminalized" the drug ... Prop 19 wasn't the right way to go. But, it's time for prohabition to end.
I'm surprised. California just gave Moonbeam another term as governor. All those people inhaled. Who was left to vote against MJ?
There's no doubt that Californians are some kind of different weird breed. Here they kick two successful--major job creator women --Meg Witman and Carly Fiornina to the curb--and then vote against an initiative that would have certainly brought in billions of new tax revenue--to their already 48 BILLION dollar DEFICIT.
I guess this is what you get with the "entitlement state" of this nation-- and it's just I am glad as hell that I don't live in California.
The potheads wouldbe dancing in the streets if it had passed
I guess at the core heart of ever lip servicing liberal there is a conservatives heart beating.
Imagine that, California, the liberal heart beat of the nation votes down porp. 19 AND gay marriage. What IS this world coming to?
billions of new tax revenue from where? The people who are laid off and such?
Like alcohol and lotteries, it would just take money from other more essiential things.
When the people are pretty much spending all they they get you cannot just pull money out of the air unless you are the feds.
I am not against legalizing pot, it is just that some of the logic supporting it is somewhat hosed.
drug use was a major factor in US "defeat" in Nam
stoned out of their minds.................
