on November 2, 2010

To legalize or not to legalize? On November 2, Californinans will vote on  Proposition 19, which if passed, would legalize the consumption and sale of recreational marijuana. Oakland North caught up with Oaklanders in Temescal and City Center to get their take on the controversial proposition.
