This is not a failure, only a temporary delay because the well-financed coalition decided to wait until 2016 when a Presidential election would produce a better turnout. In light of this decision it would be best if the California legislature would use this window of opportunity to approve their own legalization law.
What should be clear to everyone is that legalization in California is now inevitable.

Andrew Sullivan is still trying to defend his absurd claim that Obama somehow deserves credit for growing support for marijuana legalization. In fact, though, while the decades long trend towards greater support for marijuana legalization hasn’t stopped since Obama took office, it has continued despite the Obama Administration’s overt opposition.
