California Democrats Call for Marijuana Legalization

California Democrats Call for Marijuana Legalization

The state Democratic Party is now calling for the legalization of marijuana.

The change comes with the official adoption of a new platform at this weekend's annual convention in Southern California.

The platform calls for support of the "legalization, regulation and taxation of marijuana, in a manner similar to that of tobacco or alcohol."

It came with a nearly-unanimous vote -- at odds with the views expressed by Governor Jerry Brown.

A moritorium on oil fracking was also included until more restrictive environmental regulations are enacted.
