Legalizing Pot in California May Take Longer than Expected
Posted February 18th, 2014 @ 1:38pm by KFBK News

The effort to legalize marijuana in California may be on hold for a few years.  

A national drug reform coalition has decided against putting the question to voters this year, saying they need more time for outreach to elected officials, public health leaders and law enforcement.  

The group called the decision "very close."  

They'll now focus on a ballot initiative for 2016,  which could help their cause because presidential election years typically bring out younger voters who are more likely to support legalization.
