Prop 19 California

California Voters Reject Proposition to Legalize Pot

It looks like a ballot measure to legalize marijuana in California has failed. Proposition 19 would have made it legal for adults of drinking age to possess up to 1 ounce of pot, as well as to grow and smoke the drug in private, and would have authorized local governments to tax its sale.

Will California Light Up a National Pot Industry?

Many will be watching to see if the state's voters say yes to Proposition 19, the controversial ballot measure that would legalize marijuana in California. Advocates say the measure would be a moneymaker. Opponents see nothing but trouble ahead if Prop 19 passes.
