^dunno if you read about it, but there is legislation that will be going through soon and if its voted yes, it will be legalized. Obama has already stated that state laws interfering with federal laws are low priority, so if they get the yes the federal government will stand down from raiding california shops which sell marijuana. There will be a 50$ tax on it. I think it'll happen. California is progressive, budget is shit, and the federal gov. has pretty much said they will stand down.
