The San Jose Mercury news reports  city leaders say the ban will help stop illegal pot shops from opening, should the measure pass. Officials say the indefinite ban will likely remain in place until 2018, when the state could begin licensing retail pot shops under the proposal

Polls have shown Proposition 64 with more than the 50 percent of voter support needed to pass.
