California is famous for 2 things. No morals and self-defeating regulations. It’s funny how in a state where it’s OK to do anything no matter how immoral, they try to use morals against those who value them.
Actually, outside the large cities, California seems to be very conservative. The cities, though, have all the politicians and thus all the power. The smaller towns and farming areas that I’ve visited are quite conservative. That is the legal population is very conservative. From what I could see of Lodi, legal US Citizens were in the minority.
