Marijuana: Yes on Proposition AA tax proposal winning handily in polls

With the election only days away, voters have been inundated with robocalls and the like about education-oriented Amendment 66 and more. But the hype for marijuana tax Proposition AA has been far quieter, with little activity for weeks. And even opponents, who grabbed September headlines with joint giveaway protests, haven't made much noise of late. Is that because those on both sides expect it to win? A Yes on Prop AA rep doesn't put it quite that way, but he notes that polling shows the measure winning handily.
