Proposition 19 would legalize marijuana in California for personal use by individuals 21 years of age and older. The measure would authorize the commercial sale of marijuana under several restrictions. The state and local governments could regulate and tax sales of the drug. While California law will change if the proposition passes, federal law will not be affected and federal agencies could continue to enforce existing national marijuana laws.
