Yes On 19
I have been an advocate and activist for an end to marijuana prohibition for a few years now, but I have been kind of luke warm on Prop 19 so far. However with the wack job religious nut jobs coming out of the closet and beginning their attacks, and with the cowardice of some (mainly) Democratic elected officials (and thank you to the many rank and file Democrats who support legalization) it has become important to me to publicly endorse the success of this initiative.
It is not perfect and may indeed lead to even more police involvement in our lives than at present. We will see how that works out. At any rate Prop 19 is neither the beginning nor will it be the end of the struggle of the people to enjoy the four uses of this wonderful plant: spiritual, medicinal, recreational and industrial.
The most important thing about Proposition 19 is that it says to the Federal Government “Marijuana is legal.” That is a statement that the Feds must either accept or not. We will see how that works out, too. California could make it as an independent country, no problem.
have a peaceful day,
