Get used to it, because you’re going to be bombarded for the next four months by a cacophony of media messages concerning Proposition 19, which is now the official designation for the November ballot measure involving marijuana legalization. [FireDogLake.com]
The California Secretary of State’s office assigned the number 19 to the ballot measure this week. A “Yes” vote in November means you support marijuana legalization in California.
Political junkies probably know that Sacramento restarts the counter for proposition numbers every ten years, last doing so in 2008.
Marijuana legalization first made the California ballot back in 1972–when it was also called Proposition 19.
A poll taken by the Los Angeles Times in May showed that 49 percent of the residents favor legalization and 41 percent are opposed.
