Appearing on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher Friday night, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom told Maher California will have marijuana legalization on the ballot in 2016, and he thinks it will pass.

Citing the recent ballot failure in Ohio, Newsom said, "Ohio was badly crafted legislation that was monopolistic."

On California, Newsom has this to say: "It's long overdue to tax and regulate for adult use of marijuana."
