California and Proposition 19

It appears that enough of the people who voted in California objected to marijuana being legal. Regardless of the fact that;

  1. Alcohol is much worse for individuals and society as a whole
  2. Governments need the tax dollars
  3. They let violent criminals out of jail to house non-violent smokers
  4. It happens anyway, they are just keeping it illegal

All this is as logical to me as people who want to push women into backroom abortions, or rednecks so racist they do not want to support an MLK day. What they should have done was link the legality of marijuana to alcohol, and let them both be legal or illegal. (Don’t talk about the failure of Prohibition once, they just switched targets)
