Watch: Lt. Governor Tells Bill Maher California Will Legalize In 2016

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."

After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
