Aside from the horsemeat question, there are more, uh, meaty issues on the table in California, of course. The original Meathead himself, Rob Reiner, is fronting for a California proposition that would tack a 50 cent-per-pack increase onto the price of cigarettes. Smoke of another kind -- medical marijuana -- gets a look in five states and the District of Columbia (no, Marion Barry is not behind this), while abortion-limiting proposals come before the voters in two more states. In Hawaii, voters are being asked to decide the fate of same-sex marriages. Our favorite resolution? In four states today, voters are voting on whether to limit the number of initiatives that can make it into the voting booth. Just vote no.
