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!

Vote Yes on 19 poster from 1972

Yes on 19 Marijuana Legalization Campaign Poster. (Bolerium Books/LA Weekly)

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.

SurveyUSA (8/31-9/1)
Prop 19
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.

We've got to make sure the NAACP knows we've got their back. Will you take a moment to sign our petition on the right — and show your support for Alice Huffman and the NAACP? http://www.taxcannabis.org/page/s/standwithnaacp http://www.taxcannabis.org/page/s/standwithnaacp

June 28, 2010 @10:47 am The Truth About Cannabis Prohibition - June 28, 2010 From Fmr Governor Gary Johnson (R-NM) 1995-2003 Why would I, as a former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico, speak out so strongly on behalf of California's Regulate, Control, and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010? Because no matter how you look at it, our policy of cannabis prohibition has failed -- and I couldn't just sit on the sidelines while Californians have an historic opportunity to lead the nation in fixing it. But I'm not just speaking out -- I'm putting my money where my mouth is by contributing to this critical effort today. Will you stand with me? Please join me in contributing $5 to the Control & Tax Cannabis campaign today! The results of cannabis prohibition have been disastrous: •Half of what the U.S. spends on law enforcement -- on courts and on prisons -- is drug-related. We spend about $70 billion a year on victimless crimes. •We arrest 1.8 million people per year on drug-related crimes. •Over one hundred million Americans have tried marijuana -- yet we still label them criminals. These policies need to end. You know it, and I know it. And if the Control & Tax Cannabis Campaign can reach our ambitious $50,000 online fundraising goal by June 30, we can take a big step toward changing these disastrous policies. Make a generous contribution of $5 or more to the Control & Tax Cannabis Campaign -- and help us reach our goal of raising $50,000 online by June 30! We've got a lot of work to do to show undecided voters that this initiative is a sensible solution for California. We need voters to know that, even after cannabis is legalized, it'll never be OK to get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence. We need to tell voters that this initiative will make it illegal to sell cannabis to minors -- just as it is with alcohol. And we need to assure voters that, based on evidence from Holland, Portugal, and elsewhere, legalization will likely reduce marijuana use, both among adults and youths. But the voters will never know these facts unless we tell them -- and the campaign needs our financial support to get the message out. Please join me in supporting this truly historic campaign by contributing $5 or more right now. I'm proud to stand with you in this movement. With your support, I am confident that California will vote to move us toward more sensible marijuana policy in November. Governor Gary Johnson (R-NM) 1995-2003 Macarone
June 01, 2010 @03:31 pm Check this out Mac Pot Arrests Fueling Drug Treatment Gravy Train Marijuana prohibition continues to be a windfall for drug treatment providers. According to the most recent figures published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, nearly six out of ten (57 percent) persons referred to treatment for marijuana as their 'primary substance of abuse,' were referred there by the criminal justice system. By contrast, criminal justice referrals for all drugs accounted for just 37 percent of the overall total of drug treatment admissions in 2008. "Primary marijuana admissions were less likely than all admissions combined to be self-referred to treatment," the study found. Specifically, the reported noted that only 15 percent of marijuana treatment admissions were self-referred (a category that includes individual self-referrals, as well as referrals by friends and family). This percentage is less than half the number of self-referrals for alcohol and cocaine, and about one-quarter the number of self-referrals reported for heroin abuse (56 percent). Given the longstanding criticism that America's drug treatment resources are woefully underfunded and unable to meet demand, it is shocking and shameful that so many of these facilities are being used to warehouse minor marijuana offenders whose sole criteria for admission is that they ran afoul of the criminal law. Yet since 1998 the percentage of individuals in drug treatment primarily for marijuana has risen approximately 25 percent -- even though the proportion of marijuana treatment admissions from all sources other than the criminal justice system has been declining since the mid-1990s. In fact, as I wrote earlier this year ("The Feds Are Addicted to Pot -- Even If You Aren't"), some 37 percent of the estimated 288,000 thousand people who entered drug treatment for cannabis in 2007 (the most recent for which data is available) had not reported using it in the 30 days previous to their admission. Another 16 percent of those admitted said that they'd used marijuana three times or fewer in the month prior to their admission. Are these people addicts? Hardly. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/paul-armentano/pot-arrests-fueling-drug_b_588866.html Pot Arrests Fueling Drug Treatment Gravy Train

May 25, 2010 @10:44 pm Blind woman sues Dana Point over medical marijuana dispensary SAN CLEMENTE – A woman born with cerebral palsy, epilepsy and blindness has sued Dana Point attempting to stop the city from closing a medical marijuana dispensary that her attorney and family say has been her lifeline for several months. After Malinda Traudt, 29, of San Clemente, got osteoporosis in the last two years her pain could not be managed with medication, but using marijuana brought her dramatic relief, her attorney Jeff Schwartz says. "Although numerous lawsuits have been filed by dispensaries, Malinda's is the first by a patient alleging that the (city's) ban unconstitutionally interferes with her fundamental rights to life and safety, under the California Constitution," Schwartz said in a news release. Her doctors had told the family to look into a hospice when Traudt turned to marijuana, said Schwartz. Traudt's mother pushes her wheelchair to the Beach Cities Collective in Dana Point to obtain her "life-saving medicine," he said. Dana Point in March sued six medical marijuana dispensaries in town to shut them down saying they're operating illegally because the establishments are not permitted under the city's municipal code. If the dispensary where Traudt gets marijuana is closed, his client will not be able to get the medicine she needs anywhere in Orange County, Schwartz said. So, Traudt is asking in the suit filed in Orange County Superior Court on Tuesday that Dana Point's ban and efforts to shut down the collective be declared unconstitutional, and more broadly that the city's efforts to shut down all the dispensaries be declared as such. Traudt is also seeking a permanent injunction preventing the city from attempting to shut down the collective. A Superior Court judge issued a ruling last week allowing Lake Forest to shut down all medical marijuana dispensaries. Judge David Chaffee's ruling is in response to lawsuits filed by Lake Forest seeking a preliminary injunction to stop dispensaries from operating. The city argued the dispensaries violate zoning laws. "When a dispensary challenges a ban, the city simply has to show that the ban serves a legitimate purpose, such as reducing crime, loitering, or traffic. Cities always win that battle," Schwartz said in the release. "However, when a city interferes with a person's fundamental, constitutional rights, it must prove that the ban serves a compelling public interest and is narrowly-tailored to avoid interfering with other civil rights. And, the city almost always loses." City representatives could not immediately be reached for comment. In a telephone interview, Schwartz said that marijuana made his client's pain manageable without any side effects and her quality of life improved significantly. "She takes no pain medication now other than the medical marijuana," he said. "She was nearing the end." The California Compassionate Use Act, also known as Proposition 215, which was approved by voters in 1996, allows for the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Patients can legally use marijuana with permission from doctors under that law. However, federal law still forbids marijuana possession in most cases, which officials and lawyers say creates conflicts. Traudt's suit is "Based on the Compassionate Use Act but also based on the California Constitution, which grants everyone the right to life and safety," her attorney said. "In Malinda's case life requires medicine and the city of Dana Point is interfering with that ... When the government is interfering or attempting to interfere, all of that gives us standing." At her home in San Clemente on Wednesday, Shelly White fed her daughter peanut butter balls made with hash butter and coated with chocolate when she complained of pain. White said she lives in fear that the dispensary that is helping her child will be shut down. "I have lost more sleep worrying about whether or not I am going to get my (daughter's) medicine," she said, "wondering in the morning 'is today the last day when we will have peanut butter balls, is today when my dispensary will close down?' " She has no idea what she will do if the dispensary is shut down because it is clear to her that her daughter has been helped by taking marijuana for about the last six months, White said. "I guess I'll have to buy it from the drug dealers," she said. "For 30 years I have been her advocate and I am not going to stop now." Traudt was born with cerebral palsy, epilepsy, total blindness, and severe cognitive delays. "She is the face of the (Compassionate Use Act). If I could put her picture on the billboard, that's what I'd do," attorney Schwartz said. "She has been in a wheelchair her entire life. Recently, she was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis, a degenerative bone disease. Malinda's doctor gave her pain medication but, within hours, her kidneys began shutting down, her lungs filled with fluid causing pneumonia, she developed a high fever, and vomited for three straight days. Malinda's physician recommended that her mother contact hospice to arrange for Malinda's final hours," the release said. Attorney Jacek Lentz, who represents Beach Cities Collective in its separate battle to keep business and client records that Dana Point has been trying to obtain from the dispensaries before earlier this year filing suits to shut them down, said Traudt's suit is timely. "I welcome the development," he said. "It's about time that the patients took control of the situation rather than allowing the city to just run roughshod over their rights. Patients who really care for safe access to their rights to medicine need to take charge of the situation and seek redress ... Ultimately it is not about anybody making money."
