That's right, folks. Legalization of weed is officially on the California ballot. What's good about this proposition if it becomes law?Get your creative juices and rhyming schemes together. Secretary of State Debra Bowen announced the proposition numbers assigned to the 10 measures that will appear on the November 2nd ballot. Of note is Prop 19, which will be followed closely across the country
1) California can tax it, thus raising badly needed money.
2) It will put a huge dent in drug lords' profits.
3) It will put law enforcement resources where they are actually needed.
4) And it will be a blow for personal freedom.
This is something that both Conservatives and Liberals need to get behind. Face it, the War on Drugs has been a complete failure, so let's now have a new war. Let's call it the War on Stupidity. Prop 19 will be an important battle in this war to wrest control of our own lives from complete idiots.
