Marijuana Legalization On California Ballot

Posted: Mar 25, 2010

The question of marijuana legalization will be on the California ballot this November and voters seem poised to pass it. The story: 56% of Californians support legalization (April 2009 poll). Supporters are calling it a "watershed moment" in the fight for drug reform. We agree with the reformers that banning marijuana outright has been a disaster, fueling a massive, increasingly brutal underground economy, wasting billions in scarce law enforcement resources and making criminals out of countless law-abiding citizens.
