If it is that easy to get pot, why even legalize it? You still have to smoke it in a non-public place. All the prop does is give your tax money to the state instead of the drug lords.

I prefer coming home after work and smoking a bowl than drinking a six pack or having a glass of wine. Isn't that what this country is about, freedom of choices?
The way I leave you and your lifestyle alone, I only ask that you give that same courtesy to me.

There is a difference between drug decriminalization vs. drug legalization.

This Prop 19 is a socially IRRESPONSIBLE proposition. It focuses on the "ME" generation of CA potheads with total disregard to social responsibility. At least Portugal are socially responsible people.

Doing the wrong thing because it may be popular does not make the thing better. This is a gateway drug. I've seen young people follow the line from pot to stronger drugs. Legalize pot now and we will be talking about legalizing much stronger drugs down the road.
And actually, while there is a drug problem, no one can say for sure how much worse or better it would be to legalize pot or any other drug. Once this Pandora's Box is opened, it can never be closed again.
No, it's not a gateway drug. Actually alcohol and tobacco are more gateway drugs than cannabis.

What exactly would happen in this 'Pandora's Box' scenario? Seriously, be specific. What about legalizing cannabis would end the world as we know it? You do realize that it's only been illegal for about a century and before that civilization seemed to move forward, despite legal cannabis.

Blah blah blah, all you prohibitionists are the same. You're just as much about 'ME' as any cannabis user. Fight with facts, not stereotypes.

Exactly. What's so hard to grasp that the community would be better off with more money for education and less money in the hands of drug lords.

I really do not care what medical marijuana cooperative owners or cops and judges think about prop 19 because they all have a vested interest in keeping it illegal.
There opinions are worthless.

As for the 5x5 area to grow marijuana, is that per registered patient or per patient? My husband & I borth are registered patients, so does that mean we could have two 5x5 plots?
Thank you for your response in advance. PEACE

Prop 19 is for everyone. 5x5 per household.

Sharon - the laws regarding what you can grow will not change under 19 for medical users... there has been some debate within the MMJ community about cultivation, and even some fear mongering that patients that before went by the 12/6 rule that most counties have would be limited to the 5x5 grow space.

These worries aren't true. There are local and county ordinances in effect that will protect your right to grow 12 immature plants or 6 mature plants (or whatever other limits your county has) that 19 doesn't infringe upon. Local police are going to have to follow those ordinances.

I am NOT in favor of prop 19. Is is too easy to get medical pot prescription. If it passes why not tax it at 100%

Prop 19 has nothing to do with medical use.
