fortunately, the growers and social conservatives united to defeat it....Proposition 19 would change California Law to Legalize Marijuana and Allow It to Be Regulated and Taxed:
- Allows people 21 years old or older to possess, cultivate, or transport marijuana for personal use.
- Permits local governments to regulate and tax commercial production and sale of marijuana to people 21 years old or older.
- Prohibits people from possessing marijuana on school grounds, using it in public, smoking it while minors are present, or providing it to anyone under 21 years old.
- Maintains current prohibitions against driving while impaired.
How will you vote on November 2?
it was a poorly wriiten law .....the gay community in the bay and else where voted against it too....
as it imposed draconian penalties on those over 21 caught smoking with someone 18 plus....who, at the present time, only have to pay a ticket if they get caught with less than an OZ.
in other words it was reversing basic decriminalization here in the state, which has been in effect since 1975.
and decriminalization was expanded on(by the govenator himself) in 2010, just as prop 19 was being voted down.
now it is a ticket(misdemeanor) of 100$, no court appearance needed.
