“Legalize it, and I will advertise it”


So Cali takes to the polls next week, not just for the US mid-terms but also to vote on Prop 19 – the legalisation of marijuana. California already has provisions for medical marijuana, which has worked out as a de-facto legalisation at street level. The Yes campaign is looking pretty strong, with even Republicans/ tea Party peeps, such as Glenn Back, Ron Paul, Sarah Palin, expressing that they are in favour. A yes vote will have some pretty big implications cross the rest of the country and will probably mark the beginnings of a shift in drug policy across the western world.

This nub from the Open Society institute spells out the inadequacies of the current global drug strategy.
