Ruby Ocampo, 40, Alhambra, full-time student at Cal State  L.A.

How did you vote on Prop. 19?

Voted yes. “Will it bring us money? Yes. But I don’t know how they’re going to control it. It will help us financially but I’m still a little skeptical.”

Leora Juster, 25, Alhambra, a basketball coach

Voted yes on Prop. 19. “So, why not? It’s more money. But it seems like it’s pretty much legalized anyway.”

Melissa Artis, 21, of University Hills.

Yes on Prop. 19, because if you take drug dealers off the streets it will reduce crime and people are going to do it anyway.
