Yes on Prop 19!

Well because you all should be going out to vote tomorrow I thought I'd post a little about marijuana and why you should be voting yes on Prop 19 (if you live in california, that is the prop that will legalize smoking weed if your 21+). I've been going back and forth trying to decide if I like the prop. At first I was completely for it, then I read the actual prop and realized they are putting lots more regulations and fines on smoking it if there are minors present (1000$ and up to 6 months in jail for smoking with a minor oppose to the 100$ fine right now). I was pretty bummed because in all of the ads they just say legalization of marijuana when it barely does this, so I was against it. But after a lot of thinking I decided that I will be voting yes on 19. Even though this prop will increase the fines and ruin local distributers because you need an expensive license to sell, I believe that if california passes this prop many of the other states will follow suit and create similar bills. I just hope that when they draft their bills they actually decriminalize it and not just turn it into a monopoly (which is what california's doing), then california will have to follow suit.

Ok enough talk, I bet most of you won't even read that and just look at these, but thats ok, enjoy!

  1. One of my favourite infographics. I don't personally smoke - but I feel that it truly is a shame that we haven't legalized it yet...

  2. Just so it's controlled like alcohol, I won't have a problem. Although it really makes me upset when people live their life around the stuff. They make it a lifestyle rather than a hobby or 'social lubricant', as my friend often says.

  7. Good to see you're stating the facts. People need to look beyond their common misconceptions and see the truth-- pot ain't so bad and legalizing it will improve life in so many ways.

  11. I don't know. I think bad things from pot aren't happening because it's not legal. But I don't really know what bad things could happen since it hasn't really happened....if that makes any sense
