Proposition 19: Marijuana Is Back on the Ballot Again

Hosted by

Medicinal marijuana use has been legal in California since Prop 215 passed 14 years ago.  Proposition 19 on this November's ballot would legalize recreational use for Californians over 21.  It would be subject to taxes, fees and regulations by the state and local governments. The nonpartisan Legislative Analyst says it could save "several tens of millions of dollars" a year for law enforcement, jails and state prisons.
