19 Reasons Pot Should Be Legal
Continued from previous page
18. To show the traditional political parties they aren’t responding to the people. Candidates for the highest offices in California from both major political parties refuse to endorse marijuana legalization even though more than half the citizens have used marijuana and support its legalization . Prop 19 reminds the major parties that they are the servants of the people and the people’s will is sovereign.
For the Future
19. To change the world. Prop 19 is not just another California initiative. Prop 19 is being watched in all fifty states and throughout the hemisphere as the “shot heard round the world” in ending the prohibition of marijuana.
It’s up to you, California, to take that one small step for your state that will be one giant leap for the nation. Vote Yes on Prop 19!
