Feinstein opposes marijuana legalization measure

July 12, 2010 |  4:56 pm
U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) came out against Proposition 19, the measure on the November ballot that would legalize marijuana.

"Proposition 19 is simply a jumbled legal nightmare that will make our highways, our workplaces and our communities less safe," Feinstein said in a statement Monday. "A recently released report from the Rand Corp. noted that if Proposition 19 passes, the only thing that would be certain is drug use would go up and the state of California would run afoul of federal law and risk losing federal funding."
