prop-19.jpgProposition 19, which would largely legalize marijuana use by adults in California, is attracting lots of attention, but Sonoma State University Politicla Science professor David McCuan doesn't think it will be able to hold the advantage it showed in early polling. And maybe it wasn't really ever expected to.
On the other hand, Measure 25, which would scaled back the supermajority required to pass the state budget, has probably gotten a boost from the legislature's late action--again--on that very issue.
