This November, Californians will vote on Proposition 19, which, if passed, will legalize the recreational use of pot. So who opposes it? According to public records, it's:
- Police officer associations: Cops often use marijuana possession as an easy way of getting suspected criminals off the street when the cops don't have enough evidence to pin more serious charges on them.
- Correctional officers associations: Less prisoners means less jobs for prison guards.
- Beer and beverage distributors: More pot use means less drinking.
- Recyclers: Marijuana does not come in aluminum cans or plastic bottles.
You know who else I bet opposes Prop 19? Violent Mexican drug cartels.
