One group that really doesn’t want the legalization of marijuana is big alcohol.

California Beer and Beverage Distributors, a group which includes Anheuser-Busch InBev, donated $10,000 last week to the campaign against Prop. 19 (via HuffPo).

Would marijuana legalization really cut into alcohol consumption?

The real question is why haven’t pizza vendors and Netflix donated in support of Prop. 19.
