California is closer to making a decision on legalizing marijuana.
On election day voters will vote on whether or not to pass Proposition 19. The proposition is the possible answer to the state’s ongoing debate on whether or not to legalize marijuana. Former U.S. Surgeon General Jocelyn Elders feels it’s about time marijuana is legalized in the state.
If passed the law will allow anyone 21 years of age or older to possess, share, grow or transport certain amounts of marijuana . When asked by CNN anchor Don Lemon if she would smoke marijuana if it were made legal, Elders said “I didn’t smoke it when it was illegal so I probably would not smoke it if it were legal.”
