'Prop 19' California Legalization of Marijuana

'Prop 19' California Ballot Measure would legalize the smoking of marijuana in the state of California. It would allow individuals to have a small amount of pot for personal use, and would mandate the sale and taxation of the popular, and currently illegal, recreational drug,

Needless to say, Prop 19 is controversial. Opponents of the bill claim that the state should not legalize marijuana because it will make it more accessible to children, and inspire more abuse of the drug.

Proponents of the bill note that it will help create a new source of revenue for the state of California, and create a new economy as well. It should crack down on crime, as it will no longer be a black-market only product.

Medical marijuana patients in California currently worry about how Prop 19 would affect them.

More recently, Zach Galifianakis from "The Hangover" lit up a joint in support of Prop 19 on Bill Maher. Click here to see a video
