Prop 19, sends the wrong message to kids?

California voters will have big, historical decisions to make on Election Day, including whether or not to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.
Proposition 19, if passed, will regulate, control and tax the purchase and use of marijuana in the state of California.
Proponents say the tax money will help alleviate the state’s budget crisis. They also say Prop 19 will take marijuana out of the hands of minors because only people age 21 or older could carry up to an ounce.

Opponents say if Prop 19 passes, marjiuana use will only become more attractive among minors because it sends the message that using the substance is no big deal.

Reporter Richgail Enriquez spoke to both sides of the debate in Castro Valley.
