This has got to be the biggest no brainer of all time if you care for the health and safety of your children. NO on 19! A yes vote will bring more highway deaths, more addiction, and more costs in health care. Look what happened when they legalized booze? 50,000 people dead each year in alcohol related car crashes and millions spent towards health care/abuse/addiction. The same will happen with MJ. Think of your children and you children's children. NO on 19!

A no Brainer. Legalize and the Sky will not fall. there are currently 25.5 million Marijuana smokers in Anerica.

What will change? Not a lot! But California will have a dramatic decrease in the criminal justice dollars they expend each year on hunting down and locking up their current (3.5 million) Marijuana smokers, or trying to eradicate their #1 cash crop.

Say YES to Prop.19!

I see America is just about totally flushed down the toilet! Does anyone realize how many deaths we have every year as a result of alcohol, how many dui drivers. a driver can be tested on the spot but what about Marijuana? No - the driver gets arrested and goes to the hospital for test and the officer is tired up for a LONG time. Why do we need another substance to cause problems? Why do people need it anyway? Why to stop the countries that import to the U.S. then tell our politicans to stop all aid in monies and goods and prohibit travel to that country ....OH yea that would work.

The point of smoking marijuana is to get high, period.
Why do we need to legalize more stupidity? So more idiots can alter their brain and run around with delusional percerptions in a already screwed up reality?

This proposition is in direct conflict with federal law which makes it null and void from the beginning. Yet CA politicians won't fight it like they fought against Arizona's illegal immigration policies which was none of our business to interfere with....

Even if it was legalized, the tax revenue would be corrupted and up in smoke by the CA pothead politicans that already smoke crack.

Don't worry about 19 going through, the pot heads will be too stoned and not even wake up in time to vote. Projection, lose by 5% or more.

California is now the laughing stock of the world, poor leadership, business being driven out, drug policies out of touch with real world, etc etc.

As our state declines, most likely the liberal socialist Jerry Brown will win, pot will loss, Boxer might be outted, but in the end our state will still send more jobs out of state to areas like Texas, Ohio, Kentucky, etc that hare more reasonable.

Bottom line, California is a dead state, just turn it into a big park with nice weather, beaches, and good skiiing, charge people to come here. Other than that, expect at least 16% unemployment after the election if the Socialists win it all in CA.

The only thing that will change is who gets the money. Right now it's muderous thugs. I don't smoke anymore and I have no plans to start, everyone who wants to smoke already does.

Pot smokers can get pot anyway. Pot smokers don't really care about this bill. Non pot smokers should care about this bill. Less crime and more money for the state. How can you be against that? Hey maybe the streets will actually be safer? I know this concept will be hard to grasp for many of you tards out there. Legalize weed and there will be less drinking. Go check the statistics on fatal accidents where marijuana was deciding factor. Yeah, it rarely happens. Go watch reefer madness you old hacks and continue to ingest all your prescription meds.

Just imagine the horror if prop 19 passes: children disobeying their parents, white women flirting with Negros, cats sleeping with dogs, Walmart corrupting our precious bodily fluids. We can't accept this - this evil plant will tear apart the moral fabric as a nation that Barack Obama and George Bush have valiantly weaved through their selfless courage.

I suppose the prop 19 supporters are also fine with terrorists blowing up our skyscrapers, the earth's sea levels rising 200 feet, and Jews and Arabs eating christian children. Not I. I stand for America and not the falsehoods that these immoral, sexually perverted drug abusers want you to believe!

We don't need more deadly plants; we need more cable news and government regulation.

You got it. These statists love controlling others...thinking they themselves are free, when they are anything but. Go figure.

The White House and Justice Department promise to enforce Federal Laws against pot. Fair enough. The obvious question is why they are not so willing to enforce federal immigration law. Enforce the laws you like, not the ones you don't? Inconsistent.

HISTORY FACTS

*Hemp has been grown for at least the last 12,000 years for fiber (textiles and paper) and food. It has been effectively prohibited in the United States since the 1950s.

*George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp. Ben Franklin owned a mill that made hemp paper. Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper.

*When US sources of "Manila hemp" (not true hemp) was cut off by the Japanese in WWII, the US Army and US Department of Agriculture promoted the "Hemp for Victory" campaign to grow hemp in the US.

*Because of its importance for sails (the word "canvass" is rooted in "cannabis") and rope for ships, hemp was a required crop in the American colonies.
