How will legalizing marijuana via Prop 19 effect California's budget? What about crime? Is it effective drug policy? These topics and more will be discussed tomorrow in Sacramento at a joint hearing of the Senate and Assembly Committees on Public Safety. Per state law, legislative committees must hold public hearings on ballot measures. For two hours on Tuesday morning, politicians, state employees and experts -- ACLU, Rand Corporation, etc -- will convene in Sacramento. Want to watch it? It should be (no guarantees here, though) streamed live online via The California Channel.
