A controversial proposal to legalize and tax marijuana was rejected by California voters.

Proposition 19 would have made it legal to grow and possess marijuana for personal use.

Taxing marijuana would have raised an estimated $1.4 billion.

Me neither, Bob. I can easily count ten people I've known whose lives were cut short due to alcohol---either because of long-term affects or misadventure while under the influence. And of the many people I know who have used pot for a long time, I can't think of any who have...what was the question again? :wink:
Seriously...you catch my drift. I'm with you on this one. You too, JWAZ, Kurgan, et al.
