Revenue or Liberty?

California’s broke.  In fact, it makes my home state of New Jersey almost look financially healthy.  The state government is bogged down with massive entitlement spending which it simply can’t afford — and now it’s seriously considering legalizing marijuana.  I find this situation intersting:  Has the state realized that prohibition is an utter failure and that it’s foolish to try to regulate vices/victimless crimes?  Or is California just trying to find something new to tax to fill its desperately empty coffers?
