SACRAMENTO, California: A ballot initiative to legalize and tax marijuana has qualified for the November 2, 2010 ballot in California.
Gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown took the opportunity of the initiative's qualifying for the ballot to say he opposes it. Meg Whitman also opposes it.
Much of the money to qualify the initiative for the ballot was donated by Richard Lee, a marijuana entrepreneur from Oakland.
The pot legalization initiative is the second ballot proposition to qualify for California's November ballot.
