No on 19

At the eleventh hour, I just learned some troubling information about California’s proposition 19. It would not only make marijuana legal, which I support, but it would also make marijuana smokers a protected class. It would make it illegal for employers to discriminate against pot smokers — even for smoking on the job — unless they could prove that smoking pot impaired their job performance. Employers should not have to go through that kind of rigmarole to hire clean and sober workers.

As a libertarian, I have to urge a no on 19. Pity.
