No problem. I hope prop 19 passes in Cali and gets the ball rolling throughout the country. It's looking like we are close to a tipping point.

I hope so ... I had great hopes for California to lead the way in terms of decriminalizing drugs and equal rights for same sex mariages ... I just hope they aren't going to go 0 and 2 ...

The polling and momentum look good. Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of our destructive and costly drug policy.

How ridiculous is it that we have the alcohol industry campaigning against it? It's not like people will stop drinking.
