SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The California Democratic Party is taking a neutral stance on a proposition that would legalize marijuana in California.

During its Executive Board meeting in San Jose, members on Sunday voted in favor of a neutral position for Proposition 19.

The proposition, if approved by California voters in November, would allow adults to cultivate marijuana and enable local governments to regulate and tax sales of the plant to raise revenue.

Proponents have said the proposal could generate $200 million per year, but others say the amount would be lower. California already allows marijuana use for medicinal purposes.

During their meeting, California Democrats also voted unanimously to endorse Tom Torlakson for Superintendent of Public Instruction.
