The California Democratic Party voted unanimously to approve a resolution making the legalization of recreational cannabis an official party platform.

The resolution makes it clear that the California Democrats “support the legalization, regulation and taxation of marijuana, in a manner similar to that of tobacco or alcohol”. The party also called for an immediate ban on fracking, a controversial procedure used by the oil and gas industry.

The cannabis resolution was approved without debate, and through a unanimous voice vote. Cheers erupted after the vote.

“I supported it [cannabis legalization]because hopefully it will stop Hispanic and black kids from being put in jail for minute quantities of marijuana,” said Beverly Brown, a delegate from La Mirada, an 82-year-old nurse practitioner.

The vote comes as several initiatives to legalize cannabis aim for either the 2014, or 2016 ballot.

  1. I wonder how long this will last before Patrick Kennedy fucks this up… He thinks theres something wrong with you if you think marijuana should be legal.

  2. Please remember to show support for all the politicians who support the issues we favor.
