SACRAMENTO, Calif. California voters will decide whether to legalize recreational marijuana use for adults, after the secretary of state on Wednesday certified the initiative for the November ballot.

It would become the first state to legalize recreational marijuana use if the proposition is approved. Marijuana use is legal for medicinal purposes in California and 14 other states, but the drug is illegal under federal law.

It's the only thing that we stabilize the economy there.

I'm pretty sure it will be legalized. Hell, I can guarantee if they had a similar vote in all 50 states, it would be legal in all 50 states. Last poll I seen had like 75% of Americans wanting it to be legalized. Honestly, legalizing and taxing could be a solution to a lot of problems.

Fellow Californians,

You want a sure fire way to get the state economy out of the toilet? This is it.

If everyone in CA was on drugs, could anyone else tell the difference?

I think there'll be an increased presence of Feds in CA, but that'll be the only difference.

If it passes, Humboldt County is going to become the Napa Valley of Marijuana, so instead of sampling wines, you get to sample weed.

Get high in Humboldt, and get my drink on in Napa. Sounds like a plan.

When California voters head to the polls in November, they will decide whether the state will make history again - this time by legalizing the recreational use of marijuana for adults.
The state was the first to legalize medicinal marijuana use, with voters passing it in 1996. Since then, 14 states have followed California's lead, even though marijuana remains illegal under federal law.

Still seems unlikely, but it will interesting to see how the DEA responds.

I hope it does pass. I think it has a good chance. This would be the first time voters would actually have a say when it comes to pot. If it does pass it could have a domino effect on other states to finally end the stupid practice of throwing people in jail. Along with ruining their lives over something that is safe and really not a problem at all. This would be a great thing for liberty and getting the government out of our personal lives. Which would be the reason the government and the DEA will be against it.

I'm all for it actually.

That said; Do MJ smokers vote? Can we count on them to be not stoned and eating Cheetos?

I would even go higher on that number.

So if 75% had tried Meth, would it be ok as well?

Look....My drug tolerance is booze, pot and caffine. Past that, drugs and those who use them can kiss my ***.
