A new L.A. Times/USC poll shows that the majority of California voters oppose Proposition 19 – the state’s ballot measure that would legalize marijuana for recreational use. An interesting break-out statistic found that younger voters support the pot prop, but a majority of older voters are against it. This is interesting given that many in the older generation of voters have used marijuana in the past. So, why aren’t they supporting Prop 19? Larry opens the phones to find out.
