    Seventeen states and the District of Columbia representing over a third of the U.S. population have legalized the use of marijuana when recommended by a physician. Six states have marijuana initiatives on their November ballots (three legalization and three medical marijuana). $20 billion is spent each year ensnaring over 850,000 Americans in the criminal justice system. Thousands of deaths occur on the Mexican border each year deciding who can smuggle marijuana into the United States.
     
    What other issue impacts so many Americans at such a staggering cost in dollars and lives and is so completely sidelined. Yet the only thing President Obama and challenger Romney seem to agree on is to NOT talk about marijuana.
     
    That's why I created a petition to Frank J. Fahrenkopf, Jr., Co-Chairman of the Commission of Presidential Debates, the Moderators of the debates, The United States House of Representatives, and a number of other political and media luminaries to see if we can convince them to get a marijuana question in the debate.
     
    Will you sign this petition?

    Please forward this to all your friends on Facebook, get it out on Twitter and whatever way you can to get other people to sign this petition. We want to get 25,000 signers on this petition and to do that we need your help. Wouldn’t you like to see the issue of marijuana put front and center where it belongs instead of being treated like something good and decent folk don’t discuss.

    Justin and Shona,
     
    I completely agree, and note that this is true for every industry, not just marijuana. No one wants their collective, business, or operation closed, and limits on how many operators can exist only serve to keep prices higher and quality lower. Thanks for articulating these important truths.
     
    Despite the ban that now exists on paper, there are still tons of dispensaries in Los Angeles. Arguing for more regulations on them than exist now (e.g. giving the authorities an avenue to develop a partial ban in the form of more workable controls and limits they might be able to actually enforce) doesn't seem to me like "creating policies that improve access to cannabis" per ASA's stated mission.
     
    I'm glad to hear ASA is supporting a referendum to overturn the ban, and would urge them to focus their L.A. efforts on this, rather than on promoting "sensible" regulation.
     
    Love & Liberty,
    ((( starchild )))

    Americans for Safe Access has undertaken a controversial program to call Obama to account for his broken mmj campaign pledge and his attack on mmj providers in California, Washington, Colorado and Oregon. To learn more about their program, Steph Sherer, Executive Director of Americans for Safe Access, will be our featured guest on the Monday, Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. broadcast and simulcast of our radio show Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense.
     
    Steph will explain the program that will print and distribute 100,000 posters in Presidential swing states like Colorado and Nevada. The posters ask the question, "Can Broken Promises Lose an Election? 1 Million Medical Marijuana Patients Will Decide.”

    Critics have charged that the campaign will take votes away from Obama thereby insuring Romney’s victory in the swing states in which they will be distributed. Steph Sherer has written that the purpose of the campaign is to warn Obama that he may very well lose states like Colorado, key to his victory, as many mmj and mj reform voters will vote for one of the third party candidates who support ending marijuana prohibition and the rights of mmj patients rather than vote for him.
     
    If he doesn’t take a more enlightened view of marijuana, he could lose the election because so many patients and marijuana consumers will vote for a candidate who supports their views – a view which just happens to also be the view of the majority of Democratic voters in every poll about medical marijuana and marijuana legalization.
     
    Obama needs to be confronted with not only the horrors his attack on medical marijuana providers has caused, but also that he is out of touch with the majority of Democratic voters and legislators. ASA intends to do just that.
     
    One of those people who would also like to do that and to take votes from Obama and Romney and everyone else is our second guest Bruce Cain. A dedicated medical marijuana activist who has thrown his hat into the political ring as an independent candidate for President, Bruce will explain why he is running, how he plans to reach out to voters and why it is critical for mmj patients and law reform advocates to get actively involved in the political process.
     
    Tune in this Monday, Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. to hear Steph and Bruce discuss strategies to get marijuana into the Presidential campaign. Listen in this Monday at 6 p.m. and every Monday at 6 p.m. for the award winning radio show Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense on IE talk radio KCAA 1050AM and simulcast at www.kcaaradio.com.

    Glad to hear your alright.! Truly, it was so sudden and excited for your
    next chapter. I know what your saying about engery and frustration. And
    you've engraved this image of these monkeys fucking the foot ball in my
    mind and it makes shameful and suprised sense , prefect sense. That's
    exactly the perfect picture of the state of things. Not sure how we stop
    the monkeys from humping the football? Might make perfect sense just to
    leave them to their own devices.

    Hi Shona! You mention a "request for transparent planning for 2014 draft"
    in your email to Kubby. I have news about this. Last week-end at the
    Seattle Hempfest, we held a meeting of 13 people with representatives from
    the two 2012 initiatives (Regulate Marijuana Like Wine and Repeal Cannabis
    Prohibition) for the purpose of uniting around one 2014 California
    initiative. Judge Jim Gray chaired the meeting, which also included Steve
    Collette & Steve Kubby from RMLW; Bill Panzer, Omar Figueroa, Frank Lucido
    & myself from Repeal Cannabis Prohibition; Amanda Rain from Oaksterdam U;
    Kristin Nevedal from Emerald Growers Association, and Granddaddy Mike. It
    was productive and positive. At the end we all pledged to put aside our
    differences and work together for one united 2014 initiative. We decided
    to meet again after the Nov election to hash out particulars, including
    wording, consensus decision-making, and who speaks for the group. We
    rejected one thing, i.e., language that would include any new marijuana
    penalties, such as the DUI penalties in I-502. By competing in 2012, we
    failed to move forward; by collaborating as one voice, we can win in 2014.

    My advice to Steve,loveingly .. pls answer my request for transperant
    planning for 2014 draft

    The End of the Road….
    Posted by Mickey Martin on August 30th, 2012
    I have run out of words for my fight. I can no longer continue to write this blog. This will be the final day of Cannabis Warrior.
    To all the folks who have enjoyed my blog postings, I appreciate your taking the time to read them. These pages will disappear soon. But never forget the many conversations had.
    The war for cannabis freedom will not be won or lost on the internet. It will be won in the hearts and minds of the nation. I am exhausted from the battle within. I look to find new avenues to reach those who need to hear the words “Quit Taking People To Jail For Weed.” You all have heard it before.
    So as a good friend once told me….
    Always leave them wanting more…..

    huziar the terrible! But it smells like restrictive permitting ask for
    paying clients as far as support for a select few to be spared. That
    request also played out in SF early stages of regulation. One grp represent
    of 14 clubs… I kid you not wanted to cap available permits at14 , it was
    laughed out of city hall and then it was followed by many attempts to draw
    zones limits that barred competitiors. Perhaps nature of the business as
    usual beasts, but its never supported by independent patient advocates and
    patient cultivators. Nor consumers, monopolys only benefits the players.
    Not the patients.
