California Prop 19 results were somewhat disappointing. California's proposition which would have made marijuana legal in the state of CA has FAILED. California prop 19 faced stiff opposition not only from lawmakers, but teachers, parents, and those who thought that the bill was ill crafted.
Despite the defeat, the "Yes on Prop 19" chair has vowed that "next time" will be when the measure passes. Until then, the bill creators would benefit from rethinking some of the provisions within the bill, and writing the bill to give the State and not municipalities control over setting the tax base for the drug.
Many say that marijuana is no more dangerous than alcohol. The legalization of marijuana could be the "end of prohibition" of modern days. By legalizing pot, money will stay within the US economy instead of heading down to dangerous drug cartels in Mexico and beyond.
