Oops, I forgot about Monday Miscellaneous last week.
California may legalize marijuana in 2016.
Nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of Californians support legalizing, regulating and taxing recreational marijuana in the state, according to a Tulchin Research poll.
Both proposals — the California Cannabis Hemp Initiative and the Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act — would regulate and tax marijuana similar to alcohol.
Now, I’m fairly sure this is fairly meaningless, almost, because it’d still be illegal at the federal level, but I like the tax and regulation bits.
