SF Green Zone Petition

From: axisoflovesf – January 1, 1970

Hey Charlie Happy new year the reason this has yet to be accomplished even though we have a set of recommendation aproved by planning commission and created by Aaron starr and his staff is obstructionist like erich and Stephanie hallian ect they want everyone locked down and locked out and unfortunately many of the elects are in their pockets. They have refused to call hearings ect on year of work that all call for the opening of the green zone. Perhaps the aggorance of sparc crew of shutting off all the permits in avalos district so they could seat themselves and the planning commission denying is a signal that years of corruption can come to end and we can establish fair policy.That actually support patients needs. I think we need to get to the ethics commission and the media and questions regarding the corruption and the lack of actually serving the patients needs. Which is what the program was intended to do. I fully support your actvism And will circulate but its beyond time to break up the corruption and soulless aproach to medical cannabis where it all began actvist who died fighting for patients are turning in their graves at the sad state of medical cannabis in SF.

AB 26 IS Going to REPEAL COLLECTIVES and the protections afforded to Patients …WAKE UP CALIFORNIA

From: billdake – January 1, 1970

Happy New Year you all We expected the state to create obstacles so here we have their adjustments and if they are not fair they will fall when we conduct another initiative to fix whatever is needed. When our glorious leaders fall short we have the initiative process to set things right. Not to worry yet we do need to make it simple and concise. They need to know that we need fair and just MJ laws that protect medicinal and recreational users.

From: the420testimony – January 1, 1970

Just got off of the phone with an assistant at Jones-Sawyers office in the 59th District. I informed the lady that this Bill reeks of potential corruption and needs to DIE (Their number is: Tel: (213) 744-2111 ) We in the Cannabis Community are aware that the Fed’s are pushing for a regulatory system but this bill has too much potential for a corporate takeover of Medical Marijuana in California From the Cap on growing to the Cap on the number of licensed dispensaries the grandfathering of Measure “D” locations to the onerous reporting and documentation requirements not to mention having the Big Monopolies in the pockets of the ABC board…well i have said enough to open your eyes to some of the glaring problems with AB 26 “The Medical Cannabis Regulation and Control Act” Here is a small Excerpt of the IMMEDIATE Implementation plans they have for rolling this thing out while we are all overstuffed on Holiday goodies and not paying attention: 26054.

“Law-Abiding Californians Remain in Prison Over a Plant”

From: sfdreamer – January 1, 1970

The current SF Weekly has a good piece by Chris Roberts featuring the brief story of several drug war prisoners: http:www.sfweekly.comsanfranciscomarijuana-california-pot-club-legal-marijuana-medical-marijuanaContentoid3307667 Below is a letter I sent Chris so far unanswered but I think he’s out of town for the holidays or something.

Despite the TV dramas and so on society has precious little contact with the vast population of people being held in cages by the authorities and this leads to a dangerous “out of sight out of mind” state of affairs which lends itself to the incarcerated being abused with impunity. Considering how many of them shouldn’t even be there at all this is a tragic situation and the brutal smirking authoritarianism of those in charge is appalling and infuriating. > > I would like to know the identity of the “Cool Hand Luke” prison warden whom you wrote about. Why didn’t you include his name and contact info and the name of his institution in your piece It’s obvious from the way you relate the episode that you get it — the guy is like a movie villain; he has no business running a prison. Probably should be serving time in one in fact. > > But your story doesn’t say anything about whether his behavior is legal or not where exactly the system is failing us what the pathways and obstacles to reform are etc. I realize you have space constraints (at least in the print version) and time constraints but shouldn’t readers be getting this information It almost seems like you are resigned to the systematic denial of access to people who are incarcerated and have no hope of improving the situation. > > And if that is your attitude as a journalist who sees the injustice firsthand who is going to lead the fight for reform and justice in such matters Is this issue on the radars of your editors at the SF Weekly and the Examiner What is their attitude toward it What would it take to get them to mount an editorial campaign about it to use the institutional power of their papers to expose this guy and others like him and bring some public and official heat down on their heads To start playing hardball with politicians asking them about stuff like this in the context of other stories election interviews and profiles etc. For instance reminding people in say a feel-good story about a local pol presiding at some kind of ribbon-cutting ceremony that this same politician has refused to demand an investigation into X won’t return phone calls about X voted to re-authorize the budget for X without demanding reforms etc. > > If ordinary people want to visit prisoners who are in jail for things that shouldn’t be crimes or are there on “pre-trial detention” and have not even been convicted of or pled guilty to anything say at their local county jail but don’t personally know the individuals or maybe don’t even know their names how can they go about doing this If there’s no way for this to happen what would need to change in order for people to be able to do this Is there a public list of names somewhere of people held in each facility what they are in for how long they’ve spent incarcerated and when they are scheduled to be released etc. At least the kind of information you list for Matthew Davies Dustin Costa Aaron Sandusky Mollie Fry and Dale Schafer if not more > > Love & Liberty > ((( starchild ))) > Outreach Director Libertarian Party of San Francisco > (415) 625-FREE > > P.S. – Please keep my number and email address on hand and don’t hesitate to contact me any time you need a perspective or a quote from someone on the freedom side of any story relating to the size scope power waste corruption etc. of government or people who are being victimized by it and I’d be happy to talk with you. > > P.P.S. – Please show your editors this letter and let them know they are welcome to use any of the contents of this letter as a letter to the editor.
