Two prominent California names will co-chair the campaign against Prop 19, the ballot measure that would legalize marijuana in the Golden State, the prop's opposition announced today. And it didn't take long for the two, both Senator Dianne Feinstein and L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca, to get to work on the issue.

"California will not see a single positive result if Proposition 19 passes," said Feinstein in a statement. "It is a poorly constructed initiative that will cause harm to Californians on our roadways, and in our schools, workplaces and communities. I look forward to working with Sheriff Baca to ensure we defeat Proposition 19 in November."
