2010 is a big year!!! An election year!!! Everyone says that all the energy is on the TeaBagger/Republican side. Whether this is true or not, I don’t know. But don’t we have plenty of time to build our energy up so that we can match theirs. Liberals and Democrats often sit on the sidelines. Let’s not do it again! Let’s stand up.
As you may know there will be a ballot proposition on the November 2010 ballot to legalize, tax, and regulate marijuana for adults.
I read an article today about how 56% of Californians support legalizing Marijuana use. The article talks about how there is a big generational divide on the issue. It says three-quarters of adults under 35 support legalization and 54% of those over 65 oppose. It also says men support it more than women 65%-45%. Now here comes the part that concerns me, old women vote more than young men! This is an issue! This is where we step in. We want to do our part by helping register as many 35 yrs old and younger people as we possibly can.
That’s right; the REGISTER A POTHEAD campaign is on! Do you have a friend in California that falls in this category and isn’t registered to vote? If you do, please forward them this email. If you yourself fall in this category, then you register to vote!
Not all young people believe they can make a difference. A lot of them think that their vote doesn’t matter. 2010 is a great year to show them differently. If this passes, Liberals will have locked up a group of voters for the future that don’t normally show up. This is our chance to get them to come out! Spread the word! REGISTER A POTHEAD today!

This November voters in California will vote on Proposition 19, deciding the fate of marijuana’s legalization, regulation and taxation. According to the latest SurveyUSA poll of likely voters, the proposition still hold a modest lead with 47% of voters saying they are certain to vote yes while only 43% say they are certain to vote no.
Certain Yes 47
Certain No 43
Not Certain 10
This represents a slight drop in support for Prop 19 compared to the last time SurveyUSA polled the state three weeks ago. Their preview polls taken August 9th-11th and July 8th-11th both found 50% of likely voters certain to vote yes in favor of legalization, and 40% certain to vote no on Prop 19.
Looking at the cross tabs the general patterns of support for Prop 19 and marijuana legalization in general remain little changed. Men support the measure strongly (54% yes – 41% no) while women are slightly opposed (40% yes – 46% no). It is still heavily supported by young voters but opposed by older voters. Not surprisingly the Bay Area is the region of the state that most strongly backs the ballot initiative.
There are roughly two months until the election and one month until early voting starts on October 4th. Yes on Prop 19 still has a small lead but that lead has narrowed slightly. With such a close race and relatively few undecided voters the success or failure of Prop 19 will likely come down to turnout. The big question remains: Will the young voters who overwhelming support legalizing marijuana turnout in large numbers to put Prop 19 over the top?
Very strong youth turnout could make the different between a narrow two percentage point loss for Prop 19 and a narrow two point victory for Prop 19.
