Submission + - California to Vote on Pot Legalization in November (

An anonymous reader writes: The LA Times has posted a story detailing the background behind the November vote on Marijuana legalization in California. The bill "would allow adults 21 or older to possess up to an ounce for personal use" and "grow up to 25 square feet of marijuana per residence or parcel." There is also talk about retail distribution and taxation to help California's ailing economy. Are the children of Cali doomed to mushed brains and suicidal fantasies of flight? Or will the up-tight propaganda believers finally get some sense knocked into them? I for one would like to hear the opinions of other Californians along with those in other countries with more relaxed drug laws than the US.

I like work; it fascinates me; I can sit and look at it for hours.
