Paul Buchheit of Friendfeed, Gmail and now Facebook has joined up with Facebook's Dustin Moskovitz and Sean Parker in the campaign to legalize pot in California. The cause's Facebook group has more than 19,000 supporters ready to say "Yes on Prop 19."

Enthusiasts anticipate that legalizing marijuana will solve the state's financial troubles and end the Mexican drug war. Parker and Moskovitz have already contributed $170,000 towards legalizing pot in California. How far will this trio's influence (given its social media high standing) spread, with just one week before the vote?
