Marijuana legalization campaign for 2012 starts tomorrow if Proposition 19 passes or not

Support for Proposition 19, a California measure to legalize marijuana for adult use, is falling according to a recent poll.

But backers of a similar law in Colorado aren't waiting to find out if Prop. 19 passes. They've created a website, Legalize2012.com, and will be formally launching their campaign at an event tomorrow.
