California moved further to the left on Tuesday night, as the country moved to the right.

The state legalized recreational marijuana and continued to push criminal justice reform, voting yes on Prop 57, making it easier for people to win parole and rejecting warnings from police leaders that crime would likely go up as a result. But they stopped short of abolishing the death penalty.  

Larry talks with listeners about how they voted on Props 62 and 66 and why.
