As you all have probably heard, Prop. 19 got shut down at the polls. Now, I'm all in favor of it being legalized, but come on guys; first time to vote it was bound to fail. Now that doesn't mean there isn't hope for prop.19, there are already many efforts to get it back on the ballot in 2012, and chances are with MUCH more publicity. More people will register to vote just for this, which is sad, but maybe they'll vote on some other things too.
On a related, but side-note: I know about 20 frequenters of the forbidden herb that voted "NO" on prop.19 for fact that they grow it themselves already and make a killing off of it. I guess that goes to show you where their loyalties are.
