So I have my mail in ballot, which I need to mail out as soon as possible. However, there is one proposition that I keep going back and forth on, and that is Prop 19: "Legalize marijuana under California but not federal law. Permits local governments to regulate and tax commercial production, distribution, and sale of marijuana." So here is the issue. I have no problem with people who want to smoke weed in the privacy of their own homes. I don't smoke weed nor do I have a desire to, but if someone wants to smoke it safely in their own home, they should be able to. The problem with prop 19 is the way it is written. Appears to have been written poorly, with loop holes, and not enough emphasis on safety. It provides local law enforcement with no resources to assure people are not driving high. Additionally, the way the prop is currently written, many people who work with dangerous machinery, or anyone in any type of job that puts the public safety at jeopardy, may not be removed from the job if found to have marijuana in their system. Basically this opens a flood gate of lawsuits. Lets say a crane operator is high, gets fired, then sues his/her employer. The way the prop is written, it has many loop holes like this. Do you want high crane operators, etc...building your bridges and doing construction work on your freeways? Additionally, if this prop makes it anyway easier for someone to drive high and kill just 1 person in this entire state, I would feel horrible, horrible that my vote led to someones death. Also the additional income from taxing sales is totally a joke. So I'm leaning towards a NO vote, but not sure, I keep going back and forth. I'm willing to vote yes if someone makes some good valid points. What do you guys think? Some good points please, don't just say "dude smoke a joint."
