Phony fears about marijuana decrim
As this Register editorial notes, California's Prop. 19, the modest marijuana law reform proposal on the November ballot, is not a perfect proposal. But those who have suggested that having a local option for sales will create a hopelessly confusing mess, or the employers won't be able to discipline people who show up to work stoned, are stretching the possible implied meaning far beyond what any court is likely to. The polls still show Prop. 19 ahead. If it does pass, the Register will have been the only major newspaper in California that was on the side of the people.
