Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Wednesday joined Gov. Jerry Brown in expressing skepticism about legalizing marijuana in California for recreational purposes.
A majority of Californians now favor legalizing marijuana for not just medicinal but also recreational purposes, according to new Field Poll results released on Tuesday.
Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom said it’s time for California to get serious about legalizing marijuana and that he’s willing to put his political reputation on the line to make it happen.
In a sweeping new policy statement prompted by pot legalization of some form in 22 states, including California, the U.S. Justice Department gave the green light to states to adopt tight regulatory schemes to oversee the medical and recreational marijuana industries burgeoning across the country.
