If there’s one thing we Californiasians should be bummed about, it’s that Prop 19–the initiative to legalize and regulate marijuana in our state–didn’t pass.
Which means, among many things, that we will not be able to start serving cannabis cookies at family functions in order to force our Hardass Asian aunts into being slightly less awkward, perhaps… almost… warm.
And that California, for all of its Wild West-ness and reputation for progressive mantras, has proven in just two election cycles–by attempting to snuff out gay marriage and recoiling from legal pot–that the state is really just an uptight asshole. It wears a tweed dress jacket from Talbots. It should really smoke some weed.
More importantly, the inability to pass Prop 19 means that we will sadly not be seeing more of Lynn Chen as a stoner:
Ugh. Lame, lame, LAME. LAME!
OH! But you may be happy to know that one good thing came out of last night’s results. As Jen predicted in March, Joseph Cao said buh-bye to his House seat last night. Jen was right (I should have put money down on this)! She, like, totally called it!
Okay, still bummed.
