This November, a marijuana legalization measure will be put to voters in the most populous and influential US state. If Californians vote “yes” on Proposition 64 – which beat out 21 competing cannabis legalization initiatives to make it onto the ballot – their decision will resonate far beyond the state’s borders. Why is a small but vocal group of pro-legalization activists determined to #StopProp64? “The marijuana community has always been incredibly fractured,” says Lynn Lyman, California state director for the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), one of the organizations behind Prop 64.
