    They should have passed this prop twice. No, just once, just once.

    It's the correct decision. California would have become a war zone. Having the Mexican Drug Cartel killings Mexicans in Mexican cities across the border is much different than the Mexican Drug Cartel killing Californians (and their families, friends, neighbors, passerbys) for disributing pot legally.
    Basically the question was, Should we stop buying pot from the Mexican Drug Cartels and grow, distribute then increase distribution to other states illegally? The answer is no.

    Legalizing for recreational use would have killed the dispensaries, losing Cali all the money they make off Cancer and AIDS patients. Cali really can't afford to lose any of their tax base.
