Comments

"Although he believes the measure will pass, Rep. Raul Ruiz said Tuesday that he voted against Proposition 64, also known as the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, or AUMA - California's latest attempt at cannabis legalization.
"That was a difficult one," he told The Desert Sun after casting a ballot in La Quinta. "For me, I weighted on both sides and at the end of the day the doctor came out in me and I voted to keep marijuana's use as a medicinal plant and for medical uses only."
When asked whether he supports medicinal use of marijuana on the national level, Ruiz replied, "Yes, I do support federal legislation to make it a medicinal use property. I do believe that the federal government should work with states who will legalize it in order not to have any conflict in its regulation or enforcement."
