My Speech at Oaksterdam

Roseanne's appearance was threefold: She pushed for total legalization of the marijuana plant as well as donations and voters for her newly adopted political party (a push to be a Green Party candidate didn't go so well). "Marijuana should be totally legal," she said. "We live in a free country, so it should be legal to smoke marijuana and drink." Barr is running on a ticket with antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan, who Bay Area voters may remember from her 2008 bid to unseat then-House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Her appearance in Oakland was initially scheduled to be a fundraiser at a private home, but when Oaksterdam officials found out she'd be in town, they invited her to the downtown campus of the marijuana school, one of the federal goverment's victims in the recent crackdown on state-legal weed.

Barr said legalizing marijuana is the "way to end the drug wars and stop the monopoly of the subsidized prison systems." 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."
