    The solution is to legalize marijuana and have even more stoners unable to work.

    Because this ASSHOLE state goes out of its way to encourage and pander to it. My disgraceful birth-slimebucket, San Franciscodious already made it legal decades ago to piss and shit in public. And gee whiz, San Diego keeps having outbreaks of Hep-A because of it.

    The solution for normal people is to leave the State of California. I left California in 1998 and I never looked back.

    It's easier to survive the weather. There is a point in time count that takes place in January or February (convenient as hell). That's when in the coldest states they are hiding out. If possible, many relocate to places like Florida or California during the winters.

    Unemployment is a factor. Underemployment is a factor. You can have a job and still not make rent. No one has to pay you what you are worth if that labor can be obtained by hiring undocumented workers for much less. California has about 2.3 million undocumented workers at the same time there is continued offshoring and outsourcing of jobs.

    ............but you know what California and other states need? Another damn committee to study this shit. Then we can watch everyone's eyes get real big while they contemplate what it all means for a cool 2 minutes before tuning in to the poor victims of Hollywood using sex as a weapon.
