by Bay City News

Five people were arrested in Newark on Friday for buying alcohol for minors, according to police. The Newark Police Department conducted a sting operation that placed minor decoys outside liquor stores who asked random adults to buy them alcohol, according to police.

During the five-hour operation, seven adults were arrested. Five were arrested for furnishing alcohol to minors, and two others were arrested for having an open alcoholic container in a vehicle, officers said. Violators face a fine and possible jail time, police said. Funding for the operation was provided by a grant from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

You have to have a prescription for it... I'd prefer not to sign your petition.

Vanessa,now that your stance on this issue is so crystal clear (preferring not to allow the voters to decide) & your ignorance so obvious I'm sure that everyone will recognize your bias & disregard your prejudicial editorial opinion in the future on this matter

Never touched marijuana, never will. For medicinal use, sure! for recreational use, no! you must be really bored with your lives. Go do something more productive.
