If Proposition 19 passes, what does it mean for Lodi, Galt?
Lodi Police Detective Dale Miller examines the condition of some 34 large marijuana plants found growing at a residence in 2003 on the 0-100 block of North Loma Drive. Law enforcement officials worry that many more legal marijuana gardens may sprout up if Proposition 19 passes on Tuesday.

If marijuana is legalized on Tuesday, don't expect the Lodi
Police Department to suddenly have a lot more time.
A review by the News-Sentinel found that the number of marijuana
arrests in Lodi is far below the state average. In 2008, the most
recent year that data is available, a paltry 1.5 percent of all
arrests in Lodi were marijuana-related, according to the state
attorney general's office. By comparison, statewide
marijuana-related offenses accounted for five percent of all
arrests. Overall, there were only 15 felony marijuana arrests in
Lodi in 2008.
