Well, if this country is so hellbent on making money, then it seems like a pretty good idea. Only reason it was made illegal in the first place is because people could get it without having to pay taxes on it. Well, California has found a way to tax it.

There are good medical purposes for it too. It lowers blood pressure, relieves eye pressure in glaucoma patients, eases the pain of all types of cancer (and is speculated to help brain cancer go into remission), helps people sleep, also calms people down after a stressful situation. Just have to worry about a bad trip in that case.... It will also lower the crime rate by a substantial amount.

Legalize it. Trust me.

Is there anywhere we can go to see the current vote count and how close there are to the goal?

That is pretty sweet though. Its about time they do something about it. The only problem is federal law prohibits it. But then again some alcohol is legal in some states you can't buy in others.

Nobody ever died of Marijuana use. Its a much safer drug than alcohol is.

well FFS it should be legal...everywhere! As if they only decriminalized in Canada. They should have legalized it just like they should legalize in the states too.

I'm not going to say legalize even though I think it should be, because the last time I said it I got my head taken off by some prick. But that is awesome!

If it was regulated by the government, the national deficit would be erased rather quickly from taxing it(well, hopefully). Also crime would go down, and needless charges against law abiding citizens who happen to use it recreationally would free up the law enforcement for more serious stuff. I think alcohol is way more damaging than marijuana. It would also more importantly stop the incrimination against the people that it does benefit the most, such as glaucoma and cancer sufferers.

Can't say I agree either way, I'm on the fence. In one sense the benefits I see are well beneficial, but there are negative side affects. One thing I can say for sure is that legalizing weed in one state will not make a dent in the national deficit, even legalizing weed in every state would hardly help the cause.

Weed is no different than alcohol.. if you abuse it bad shit happens, its not that big of a deal. Honestly if they legalize it everyone will just get bored of it and not use it altogether

Not gonna free up cops, guys. Now instead of arresting people for smoking weed, officers will have to stop, id the person if they appear to be underage and take up more time. It would only be legal for adults. Did you read it?

That, and people are still going to grow their own or grow more than the amount of licenses they have (it was one lisense to grow one plant right?).

what defines one plant, one shoot coming out of the ground, or what one seed produces?

This is news?

It has been "almost legal" in The People's Republic of California for a long time. All you need is a doctor's note to be able to purchase and consume marijuana at any "cannabis club" or medical marijuana dispensary.
