Presidential candidate Roseanne Barr Voices Support for Pot Legalization

 

September 28, 2012 OAKLAND, Calif. —

Presidential politics and the war on drugs took a strange twist in Oakland Thursday night as actress-comedienne and now presidential candidate Roseanne Barr spoke at Oaksterdam University.

Barr had a message for the crowd who came to hear her speak:  legalize marijuana.

The town hall meeting on medical marijuana doubled as a campaign rally for the former TV sitcom star, who’s the presidential nominee for the Peace and Freedom party.

No matter how many of campaign stickers she sells, Barr said she knows she can’t win. But, she had no trouble firing up a friendly crowd.

“Government’s not supposed to be run like a business!” said Barr Thursday night.

She said her run for president is no joke.

“The war on drugs is a class war!” she said.

She told KTVU she’s not in the race to get her name in the papers.

“I’m not doing it for publicity, because my political views have ended my career,” she said. “It’s not for publicity, that’s for sure.”

She is no stranger to controversy or politics since her widely criticized rendition of the Star Spangled Banner in 1990.

Barr said she came to Oakland because of the federal raid of Oaksterdam University in April.

Medical marijuana advocates blasted President Obama saying he broke a commitment to respect state laws allowing dispensaries.

Barr also admitted that she smokes mairijuana.

“I have a prescription and absolutely I do smoke marijuana and I have for several years, most of my life to this point,” she said.

Barr’s running mate is anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan. They said they hope to get people registered to the Peace and Freedom party so it can remain on the ballot in California.

Roseanne Barr Presidential Campaign Ads In California

ABC News’ Michael Falcone reports:

One presidential candidate is buying television airtime in California, but it’s not Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.

It’s former sitcom star Roseanne Barr, who is running as the Peace and Freedom Party’s presidential candidate.

Media tracking sources tell ABC News that Barr is spending $4,900 to run television ads in the San Francisco Bay Area from Oct. 9 through Oct. 16. She’s purchased time on cable stations like CNN, MSNBC, TBS, the Country Music Channel and Comedy Central.

Solidly-Democratic California typically does not get much action on the TV airwaves from the major party presidential candidates.

No word yet on what the ad will look like, but here’s a clue:  Barr is running mostly on a one-issue campaign platform — legalizing marijuana.

“Thank you for breaking through your mind control programming and having some free thought,” she told a crowd at an Oakland, California marijuana dispensary earlier this month. “Marijuana really does help you break through that and remember what is important.”

And in an interview with the Bay Area television station, KTVU, she was candid about her own pot use: “I have a prescription and absolutely I do smoke marijuana and I have for several years, most of my life to this point.”

Barr captured the Peace and Freedom Party’s presidential nomination in August and chose anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan as her running mate. She originally competed for the Green Party nomination, but lost that bid.

President Roseanne? Comedian Gets Thousands of Votes

By  (@alyssanewcomb)
Nov. 7, 2012

Comedian Roseanne Barr and peace activist Cindy Sheehan could have been elected president and vice president if more than 40,000 voters had had their way.

Thousands more online said they’d prefer that porn legend Ron Jeremytake the helm as leader of the free world.

While it was not known how many write-in votes Jeremy received, Barr’s candidacy on the Peace and Freedom ticket carried her to a sixth-place finish in California, where she received 36,762 votes.

In Florida, Barr and Sheehan received 7,996 votes, according to the latest tally.

“I thank the people who voted for me — most of you were first-time voters that would never have voted for Obama or for Romney,” Barr tweeted today.

The comedian, who had originally recruited country music icon Willie Nelson as her vice president before he backed out, campaigned on a platform that included the legalization of marijuana, a resource-based economy and forgiveness of student loans.

“Now we begin: holding our president’s feet to the fire. #debtrelief #peace,” she tweeted today.

Jeremy, who said he didn’t do much campaigning, knew his candidacy, much of which was fueled by Facebook and Twitter, was a long shot.

“I don’t take myself too seriously. Coming from my world it’s tough to win,” the veteran adult entertainer said.

But Jeremy gave ABCNews.com a glimpse of what would be first on the agenda in a Jeremy administration.

“The biggest thing I’d do is give tax incentives for Americans to stay in America,” he said. “We need to keep the business here.”

But over the past few months, Jeremy hit the campaign trail not for himself but for the adult film industry. Last night, much to Jeremy’s disappointment, Los Angeles County voters passed a measure that would require adult performers to wear condoms.

“It’s the final nail of the coffin for L.A. filmmakers,” he said. “It’s going to force them to go out of town.”

Even though he’s more disappointed about the Los Angeles measure than his own electoral loss, a would-be President Jeremy said he wanted to say “thank you” to his supporters.

And he had a special message for the person who came up with his innuendo-laden slogans that went viral.

“Whoever did that, I want to kiss them,” he said.
