Stars to Turn Out for Marijuana Initiative

Melissa Etheridge, Danny Glover and Hal Sparks are scheduled to endorse Prop 19, the initiative to legalize marijuana in California, at a press conference in West Hollywood on Thursday.

Joining them will be former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, former LAPD deputy chief Steve Downing and filmmaker Melissa Balin.

This weekend also is the first annual Buddhafest at Los Angeles Center Studios (where shows like "Mad Men" are shot), an event designed to raise awareness of cannibis.

Prop 19 would legalize marijuana for those over 21 and establish a system to tax its sale.
