Proposition 71 Becoming a Farcical Three Ring Circus

This article has pegged the ridiculous joke that Proposition 71 has quickly become. Conflicts of interest, no transparency, not even enough trained researchers to do the cloning that California citizens are borrowing $6-7 billion (including interest) to fund.
