Facebook Billionaire Explains Why He Backs Prop 19

"Late last night I reported that Facebook billionaire Dustin Moskovitz had given $70,000 in support of Proposition 19, which would allow people 21 years old or older to possess, cultivate or transport cannabis for personal use and would permit local governments to  regulate and tax commercial production and sale of the substance(Click here to read original post).
Asked for a comment as to why he’s backing the legalization of marijuana, Moskovitz just sent this statement:
“More than any other initiative out there, Prop 19 will stabilize our national security and bolster our state economy. It will alleviate unnecessary overcrowding of non-violent offenders in our state jails, which in turn will help California residents.”
Moskovitz made his debut on Forbes list of 400 Richest Americans last month thanks to his 6% stake in Facebook, the social networking site he helped co-found. He has since left Facebook and now runs a startup called Asana, backed by several of Facebook’s earliest founders.

  8. I think it's a good thing. The Rockafeller drug laws were never intended to make possession offenses major crimes, but somewhere in the war on drugs that changed. Now the jails are filled with non-violent offenders

  9. I really need to read the actual text of the prop before backing it, but I think it is at least moving in the right direction!
