— California could become the first state in the nation to legalize marijuana under Proposition 19 - a ballot initiative that would regulate and tax pot just like alcohol. The marijuana industry is estimated to be worth $14 billion in California, making it the largest cash crop in the state. The prospect of legalizing pot and commercializing its sale, has many believing the Golden State could find its way out of an economic slump as the marijuana state. KPBS takes a look at who stands to lose and who stands to gain if Proposition 19 passes.
