CA: Green Party Supports Marijuana Legalization, Democrats Want to Continue Failed Experiment in Prohibition

From Green Party Watch:
An article posted at Bay Area Indymedia notes that the California Green Party supports Proposition 19, the Marijuana Legalization Initiative, as does the Peace & Freedom Party. The Democratic Party has taken a neutral official stance on the initiative, the results of which are likely to be close, according to polls. Leading Democrats like US Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein and gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown publicly oppose Proposition 19, as does Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman.
Meanwhile, Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein is pushing a bill to double the already existing punishments for "pot brownies."
