Beer distributors oppose marijuana legalization bill

Beer distributors in California have united to fight against the Proposition 19, which would legalize pot.

"Unless the beer distributors in California have suddenly developed a philosophical opposition to the use of intoxicating substances, the motivation behind this contribution is clear," Steve Fox, director of government relations for the Marijuana Policy Project, said in statement. "Plain and simple, the alcohol industry is trying to kill the competition. Their mission is to drive people to drink."

Interestingly, some beer makers are telling their distributors that they want no part of this nonsense.
