14. The whole Initiative process
has been a disaster for CA. Prop 13 was one of the worst. People rarely read how much these initiatives will cost the state. It's more like they think it sounds like a good idea so they vote for it. Then it becomes mandated and the state has to pay for it.

I think the last initiative I voted yes on was the decriminalization of marijuana. That would have saved the state money but the fear mongers won out on it.
