Prop 19 Failed to Pass

Tonight ended in great disappointment for the advocates of Prop 19, and those wishing to move forward in ending the prohibition of marijuana. Even though Prop 19 does not affect the provisions of Prop 215, many growers were still opposed to Prop 19 because they didn't want their profits taxed. You know during the prohibition of alcohol in the 20s, the mafia and bootleggers didn't want to legalize alcohol either. This bill which had majority support earlier, failed, thanks to the misinformation spread around by the growers, old people, dumbasses, and in general the opponents of Prop 19. So what could have helped set the precedent for legalization and marijuana reform laws in other states, will now have to wait thanks to a bunch of greedy fucks.  California's next legalization bill will come in 2012 in the form of Prop 215. The fight is far from over.
