There's almost no doubt in my mind that Prop 19 will be brought back onto the ballot in California during the 2012 elections, and perhaps even in other states as well. Legalizing and taxing pot is really one way that states can pad their budgets.
And considering that Proposition 19 got more votes in California than Meg Whitman, maybe some could venture to say that Californian's would rather have marijuana legalized than have another Republican governor?
