Summary

In 2010, California narrowly missed passing a voter referendum to legalize marijuana production and use at the state level. The initiative, known as Proposition 19, was ill-drafted and illogical, but it still came within just a few percentage points of passing - and it did so in a year with a strong conservative tide. A different proposition, but aimed to the same end, is virtually certain to be on the ballot in California in 2012, and proponents are also trying to get it on the ballot in other states, including Colorado, Oregon, and Washington. The odds of passage in California are good, and the United States is likely to soon see a flood of similar propositions in other states. At some point, probably more distant, the legislatures, and even perhaps Congress, may pick up the debate. The debate and media coverage surrounding Proposition 19 reflected profound confusion, both about the current state of the world and about the likely effects of changes in the law.Marijuana Legalizationwill provide readers with a non-partisan primer about the topic, covering everything from the medical definition and benefits and negative consequences of using marijuana, to current laws around the drug, the likely consequences of legalization at the state and national levels, and ideas about the way that marijuana could be produced and regulated. In conclusion, the authors will lay out different strategies to address the situation, both at the national level and at the state level.
