Prop 19 Results | Prop 19 Status

Prop 19 Results | Prop 19 Status. What happened to proposition 19? According to the reports prop 19 also known as the Regulate, Control & Tax Cannabis Act was a failed ballot initiative on the November 2, 2010 California statewide ballot. It would have legalized various marijuana-related activities, allowed local governments to regulate these activities, permitted local governments to impose and collect marijuana-related fees and taxes, and authorized various criminal and civil penalties.

Proposition 19 argued that it would help with California's budget shortfall, cut off funding to violent drug cartels, and redirect law enforcement resources to more dangerous crimes, while opponents claimed that it contains gaps and flaws that may have serious unintended consequences on public safety, workplaces, and federal funding. As of October 2010, even if the proposition is passed, the sale of marijuana will remain illegal under federal law via the Controlled Substances Act.
