In the election a few weeks ago, two more states and Washington, D.C. voted to legalize marijuana. The question is: why hasn’t California?
California voters said no thanks to a ballot initiative that would have made it the first state to legalize marijuana for recreational use and sales.
President Barack Obama’s drug czar says federal officials haven’t ruled out taking legal action if California voters pass a ballot initiative to legalize recreational medical use.
A new study says that if California legalizes and taxes marijuana, people will probably smoke a lot more pot, and the price will drop dramatically. But the study’s authors aren’t so sure about their conclusions.
