Prop 19 Puts Pot in the Spotlight
This November the California ballot will contain Proposition 19, which calls for the legalization of marijuana for all persons over 21.

This is a monumental step for marijuana advocates as they move past the

current state legislation which permits marijuana for medical use.

However, even if the proposition is passed, it doesn't guarantee that



marijuana will be legalized.





Proponents of the proposition seem to be near certain that, should the

initiative pass, federal authorities will immediately request an appeal.





''I have no doubt that the feds will file suit if Proposition 19

passes,'' says Sale Gieringer, the director of the California branch of

NORML, the National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws.





The reasons for a federal suit go beyond opinion, according to nine former DEA administrators.





The former DEA authorities state that, ''The California proposition is

not a close call. It will be a clear conflict with established federal

law.'' One of those authorities is the former supervising U.S. attorney

in Los Angeles, Robert Bonner.





''The United States has treaties that would be violated if Proposition

19 were enacted. It would send a terrible signal to countries of the

world,'' said Bonner.





Last year, the medical marijuana movement accomplished a big feat when

Attorney General Eric Holder stated that the federal government would

cease targeting medical marijuana operations in states that permit

medical use.
