It’s all about the money.
Powerful corporate interests oppose Marijuana legalization..Big Pharma, Prison, Alcohol to name a few.
What powerful corporate interests oppose gay marriage? Opposition to gay marriage by groups like “Focus on the Family” is more about moral opposition than financial.
That is why Obama won’t go near the issue of Cannabis legalization…he knows who pads his campaign coffers. Endorsing gay marriage only pisses off the Christian right; a group that hated him anyway.

Encouraging poll to say the least. Very proud to be a Californian, where it looks like we may be the ONLY state to emphatically buck the nationwide Tea Party/GOP trend.
Still worried about the AG race; that looks to be the one to watch now as Prop. 19, Brown and Boxer look fairly safe. Vote against Steve Cooley for Attorney General! 4 more days; let’s turn out those young voters!
