If Proposition 19 passes in November, California would become the first state to legalize and regulate recreational pot use. Adults could possess up to one ounce of the drug.
Supporters have targeted two areas of concern for voters: the economy and crime. Legalized pot would bring much-needed revenue to the state and reduce the influence of drug cartels, they said.
The measure was endorsed Tuesday by the largest labor union in the state. The Service Employees International Union, which has 700,000 members, said revenue generated by the initiative would help California preserve (union) jobs and avoid cuts to key services such as education and health care.
The union represents workers in health care, building services and state and local government.
Higher education? Sounds like the SEIU wants to stem job losses and seed California's prosperity, or at least get the people where they don't give a rat's patoot about what's going on in California.
Time to buy munchie futures...
