California's #1 Cash Crop

In November, California voters will decide whether to legalize recreational use of marijuana:
Secretary of State Debra Bowen certified that the petitions seeking to place the question on the ballot had more than...the minimum number needed to qualify.

If approved, the initiative would allow those 21 years and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana, enough to roll several marijuana cigarettes. Residents also could cultivate the plant in limited quantities.
Marijuana is California's #1 cash crop, it's WAY safer than alcohol, yet it remains illegal.

I'll be very interested to see how this initiative polls. In the mean time, those advocating legalization can count on my YES vote!
