Prop 19 fails to pass
Even with massive support from celebrities and stoners across the state, prop 19 just couldn't make the cut.
"It's still a historic moment in this very long struggle to end decades of failed marijuana prohibition," said Stephen Gutwillig, California director for the Drug Policy Project. "Unquestionably, because of Proposition 19, marijuana legalization initiatives will be on the ballot in a number of states in 2012, and California is in the mix."
The battle may have been won this round but the war is far from over.
Yesterday was a rough day for Cannabis
4 states shot down Marijuana measures yesterday including, California, Oregon, South Dakota and Arizona. What could of been a historical day for California turned into a victory for the people against the legalization of Cannabis. It would have been a great day in history to finally end the prohibition but unfortuantely it didn't turn out how we wanted. Oregon, S.D and Arizona also suffered yesterday with their medical marijuana measures also being defeated.
California's Prop 19 to legalize marijuana was defeated 54 percent No to 46 percent Yes.. With 97 percent of precincts reporting, Prop 19 was losing by eight points, just over half a million votes (3,891,521 No to 3,349,237 Yes). Servers were overwhelmed Tuesday night at the California Secretary of State's website.
Oregon's Measure 74, which would have legalized medical marijuana dispensaries in a state which already allows medicinal use of cannabis but provides no legal access other than cultivation, went down to resounding defeat with 567,254 votes, or 58 percent No, and 406,859 votes, or 42 percent Yes.
South Dakota's Measure 13, which would have legalized medical marijuana, was defeated even worse, with 199,464 votes, or 63 percent No, and 115,548 votes, or 37 percent Yes. The magnitude of the defeat puzzled activists who, just four years ago, came much closer when the medical marijuana ballot initiative, the first ever to be defeated in a statewide vote, went down 58-42.
