Let me guess; more taxes, more welfare, more money spent on illegal immigrants, more disrespect for law enforcement, more power to the CA Franchise Tax Board, and increased Waste-Fraud-Abuse! Oh, I forgot; bloated salaries and pensions.

Ah, don't be so glum.

Less money spent on enforcement of victimless crimes like smoking pot or being a homeless person, more money spent on actual rehabilitation and treatment, less money to the corrupt people profiting off of private prisons. Fiscally responsible, and gives law enforcement more time to go after people who ACTUALLY harm people or steal from them. i.e. do their jobs protecting the public, not be glorified tax collectors or morality police.

More money for education, more money for transportation and infrastructure, more regulation of predatory business practices (privacy/net-neutrality regulation on tech companies).

Illegal immigrants? Mostly work harder than you ever will, and they aren't even eligible for benefits. At 4.2% unemployment, it's not like Americans are hurting for jobs in California.

Like they say, “love it or leave if.”

I agree spdrun.

That said, I’m not crazy about drug enforcement reforms. Since drugs have already saturated inner cities, drugs are seeking market share in the suburbs and rural areas where growth is phenomenal, as one would say. The people who voted for drug laws should get comeuppance and be made to suffer when their kids get addicted. They should not get free passes. Just my 2 cents.

An eye for an eye makes the world blind. The madness needs to stop at some point.

It’s an eye for an eye only if there’s a relatiatory response. In this case, why not let the drug epidemic takes its course? Let people experience the laws that they felt were righteous.
