Marijuana in California

This is an interesting story.  I've been wondering when something like this might happen, and often I try to imagine the ramifications.  Is legalizing marijuana like this a good thing or a bad thing?  Is legalizing marijuana at all a good thing or a bad thing?

I think that legalizing medical marijuana was a good thing.  If I were dying of some horrible, painful cancer, I would like to be stoned until the very end.  Sure, there is morphine and other powerful opiates that you'd get as you wasted away in some hospital bed, but being high on pot might help you cope better.

Now that it is on the California ballot, I am very curious to know how things will turn out in the November general election.  Also, should this pass, making marijuana legal to grow and possess (in personal quantities, that is), I wonder how the California economy will be affected.  One thing that came to mind is that perhaps there will be an in-flow of new California residents.  More people moving to California…

Today on TV

While trying to learn Objective-C and Cocoa programming on Mac OS X, I took a break to see what was on TV.  Star Trek: The Next Generation is on SyFy all day.  Yay!  This should make learning Objective-C a little more fun.  I think.
