I'm all for a more realistic stance on drug (ab)use, the United States has way too many people serving prison sentences on grounds that in most other jurisdictions would merely get you a slap on the wrist.
So even if I agree with the ideas behind proposition 19 (and I think it doesn't go far enough, why should there be an age limit, smoking has no age limit, neither does drinking, but selling cigarettes and booze to minors is an offense in many places) I don't see what his (theoretical) riches have to do with it, other than that he can spend some money on causes that he sees as worthy.
Personally I think that wealthy people sponsoring political causes is a terrible way to run a country, sometimes that will lead to things good for everybody, but most of the times I would expect such wealthy backers to support legislation that benefits them or their corporations.
As for Mokovitz having that much money, he doesn't, he's got a bunch of Facebook stock, and that's not exactly the same as having money in the bank.
Of course that goes for many people on the Forbes 400, but I'm thinking that $70,000 may not be as much of a pittance as you might expect based on the numbers thrown around there, I don't think he won't be able to go shopping on Monday but I also don't think it is below the radar for him.
I got that here:
Which may of course be out of date.
Right, I'll just leave it at that.
19 states allow it
15 ban it completely
the rest have exceptions for location and family members
Because it was more complex than just that single number (the 15 that completely forbid it) I included the link so you can verify for yourself that only 15 states have an outright ban.
What is considered a 'private setting' and a family situation is not for me to decide, we're talking about consumption here, not about sales.
So in 35 states drinking by minors in some settings is legal, and in 19 of them there are no restrictions.
By the same logic, in 31 states there are some restrictions on alcohol consumption, and it is completely forbidden in 15 of those.
No, but currently in our society, for better or worse, his status as a celebrity sure does.
