Transcript for California's 'Frakenfood' Vote, Legalization of Gay Marriage, Pot
Today, in honor of this day, forget "pop news." It's "prop news." Oh. Okay. In addition to voting for the candidates, there were several voter referendums on the ballots, making news this morning. Like california's prop 37. This has been dubbed the franken food prop, in all genetically modified foods would have to be labeled in grocery stores. More than 88% of corn and soy grown in the u.S., This is slightly disturbing, is genetically modified in some Consumer watchdog groups say californians deserve to know. Food tech groups spent $44 million fighting this prop. It's too close to know. Another initiative had voters deciding whether or not to legalize marijuana. Those in favor said it would be taxable so the state government could make some money. Many opponents argued it is a gateway drug and would lead to a host of problems. Oregon voted it down. Colorado and washington passed the prop. The governor of colorado is not pleased. He said, and I quote, federal law says marijuana is an illegal drug. So, don't break out the cheetos or goldfish too quickly. Not medical marijuana? This is recreational use. I know medical -- come on. He's moving to colorado. Okay. And in arizona, everybody, here's another one. Arizonans, is that correct? Yeah. They had to vote on an interesting question. Who owns the grand canyon? The state or the federal government? And they decided, by a large margin, that being the landlord for more than 30 million acres might not be all it's cracked up to be. Supporters felt if arizona had control of the land, it could lead to a large revenue stream from tourism. But voters overwhelmingly decided t's leave it all to the federal government. Yeah. Honestly, this is an important piece of real estate. We have to keep it pristine. And finally, really quick. There was a measure, it was called measure 78 in washington, in which voters got to decide whether they're state constitution could get a little makeover. The oregon constitution. Did I say washington? The oregon constitution. It dates back to 1857. Reportedly has misspellings, gra m m maticcal errors. With this state, all references will be gender-neutral. And it passed. That is news. I will say. FOR THOSE OCDs AMONG US, Terrific. It looks fresher and younger already. It sure does. A little nip tuck never hurt anybody.
