Usual Suspects Not Donating to Marijuana Initiative

LAist needs your reader support
You can power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today during our June Member drive.

Perhaps they're waiting until it's closer to November, perhaps not. The campaign for Prop 19, which would legalize marijuana in California, is not seeing large donations like similar drug propositions in the past, finds the LA Times.

The latest Field Poll found that Prop 19 would narrowly lose.
