(LOS ANGELES) -- With election day less than a week away, the proposition in California getting the most attention is one that would legalize marijuana for recreational use. On Tuesday, Californians will take to the the polls and vote on Proposition 19 to decide whether or not small amounts of pot should be legal to carry and grow.
Many residents have embraced marijuana for medical use, but apparently disagree with recreational marijuana use. The latest polls show Prop 19 losing by a hefty margin.
But Antonio Gonzalez, the head of a phone bank in Los Angeles that's been calling voters to get their support, claims the polls are unreliable because many people don't want to admit to pollsters how they'll vote.
Gonzalez says, "There may be a whole group of voters out there that are really going 'as long as they don't know that I'm going to vote yes, I'm fine with it,' but talking to a live person they're no."
If Prop 19 passes, Californians will be allowed to have up to an ounce of pot, as well as the right to grow it.
