Yes on Prop 19
By Dave Winer on Friday, October 29, 2010 at 5:51 PM.

A picture named littlebud.jpgI don't live in Calif, but I did for many years -- and one of the cool things about the state is that it leads the way in many social innovations. This year it has the chance to take the next big step in the ending of prohibition on marijuana.  permalink

According to Nate Silver, it's close -- within a single percentage point in polling earlier this month. But he also says polling in propositions is notoriously inaccurate, so no one knows. permalink

Who would have thought in 2010 that marijuana would still be illegal. It should be taxed and regulated like alchohol and tobacco. Sure, in a perfect world no one would need drugs. Please let me know when we get there! :-) permalink

If you vote in California, please vote Yes on Prop 19, and encourage your friends and neighbors to get out there and vote for it too.  permalink

(And while you're at it vote for Jerry Brown and Barbara Boxer too!) permalink
