The last post was about why not to vote for Prop 19, so it is only appropriate to provide some counter arguments and show why you should vote for Prop 19.
"If an employer allows employees cigarette smoking breaks and/or certain areas in which cigarette smoking is allowed, they would have to allow marijuana smoking as well."
"The initiative expressly omits any definition of what constitutes being "under the influence" of marijuana. No driver over 21, including bus, taxi, light rail train operators, or everyday commuters can be required to be drug-free while operating a vehicle. Although the initiative says you cannot use marijuana while driving, it is completely permissible to use marijuana just prior to getting behind the wheel.
"Prop 19 will likely supersede prop 215, adversely affecting medical cannabis users by dictating grow size, possession amount, patient to patient sales, and location of use."
"Prop 19 will lead to the walmartization of the cannabis industry. And unfortunately, this will result in lower quality and fixed prices."
"Do you grow cannabis with a doctor recommendation? Prop 19 will likely be interpreted by law enforcement and judges to limit your grow space to 5'x5'".
"There will be a $50 tax on every ounce of cannabis sold."
"One joint is equal to 20 cigarettes."
"Legalizing the production and distribution of marijuana in California could cut the price of the drug by as much as 80 percent"
"Marijuana has more cancer causing chemicals than tobacco"
"Marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance with no known medical benefits."
