Legalization 2012 Forecast: Mad Hype, Little Change

The first marijuana legalization effort of California’s 2012 election cycle isn’t off to a great start.

Despite token mainstream press from the likes of the Washington Post and California Watch, the ballot initiative best known as “Regulate Marijuana Like Wine” has little to show for itself, and almost no funds.

The hype so far has, in fact, yielded a teachable moment: Almost anyone can file an initiative in California and few of them go anywhere. Those serious about legalization should be looking at the fundamentals.
