Help Protect Marijuana Legalization

Even as the drug policy reform movement celebrates our historic victories legalizing marijuana in Colorado and Washington, we still have to ensure that the states can implement their laws without federal interference. Several U.S. representatives from Colorado recently introduced a bipartisan bill to help protect our victories by giving the states room to implement the new laws. Although Colorado and Washington voted to regulate and tax marijuana, these ballot initiatives are not going to implement themselves. We need to do everything we can to ensure the federal government plays a constructive  rather than destructive  role. So I did something about it, and I hope you'll join me. Tell your legislators to support the bill that would enable the states to make their own marijuana laws.

Contra Costa Times Sept 27 2012

In Oakland visit, presidential candidate Roseanne Barr says marijuana should be 'totally legal' By Kristin J. Bender and Josh Richman Bay Area News Group San Jose Mercury News Posted: ContraCostaTimes.com OAKLAND -- Peace and Freedom Party presidential nominee Roseanne Barr came to Oaksterdam on Thursday evening to distance herself from President Barack Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney and their stance against marijuana. The comedienne and former television star held her town-hall meeting, "The Political Future of Medical Marijuana," in front a standing-room-only crowd of about 200 at Oaksterdam University.

Barr, along with vice presidential running mate and anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, are running a symbolic campaign in that the pair are not on the ballot in enough states to win. The appearance on Thursday was not only a push for money but a push for voters. Changes to election law make it so the party must nearly double its registration by the end of 2014 to stay on the ballot. "Thank you for breaking through your mind control programming (and coming to the town-hall meeting) and having some free thought," she told the crowd. "Marijuana really does help you break through that and remember what is important." The crowd reacted with thunderous applause and chants of "Rosie, Rosie, Rosie." The 59-year-old Barr said she has … [Read more...]
