Since many are hopeful that California will have weed legalized for everyone in California, we thought we would share with you what happened in 2006. From the trends you can see below, fewer and fewer people see marijuana as a "bad, evil, boogie-man that will unravel society as we know it."

California Marijuana Initiatives 2006:

  • Santa Barbara, CA. Measure P Win by 65% Make marijuana possession the lowest law enforcement priority.
  • Santa Cruz, CA. Measure K Win by 64% Make marijuana possession the lowest priority for laws enforcement.
  • Santa Monica, CA. Measurer Y Win by 65% Make marijuana possession the lowest priority for law enforcement.
  • Albany, CA. Measure D Win by 53% to allow a medical marijuana dispensary in the City of Albany.

What's the next step in making something the lowest criminal priority? Legalization.
After the jump more results from other states' 2006 Marijuana Initiatives.
