Prop19 Status, During Tuesday’s election, Californians took to the polls to choose a new congressman, elected a new governor and decide the fate of the proposal 19, which seeks to legalize the use and cultivation of marijuana in the state.
While young Californians are hoping that the state would vote “Yes” to the extent contested, a poll was released Tuesday by the California Field Institute found that 49% of voters plan to vote against the legalization of marijuana.
According to the proponents of Proposition 19, if they lose in this election, they will try again in 2012.
The referendum on the merits, which allow residents over 21 years to cultivate, possess, consume and purchase the drug was found with a lot of criticism – which would explain why the proposal is not going to happen (we do not have official results yet.)
According to early exit polls, only 11 percent of voters called Proposition 19, the reason I came out to vote and voters between the ages of 18 to 39 years are generally in favor of the initiative is not was submitted to the polls.
Most people who are against support 19 told pollsters that the free use of marijuana increases the risk of accidents, consequences in the workplace and create a legal platform for drug traffickers in California.
While the sponsors of the measure insisted it would be a major source of revenue for a state where cannabis is legally prescribed.
Even if successful Prop 19 that would conflict with federal law, which still consider cannabis as a prohibited substance.
