In a recent town hall meeting, Maine Governor Paul Le Page made the incredibly racist comments that out-of-state drug dealers “with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty” are impregnating the “young white” girls of Maine.

These remarks, which hearken back to the beginning of cannabis prohibition in the 1930s, are reprehensible and completely unacceptable. Due to this, we ask that you please sign the petition calling for the immediate impeachment of Governor LePage. If you agree that Governor LePage should be impeached over these comments, please sign the petition by clicking here.

Signing this petition will send an e-mail to every member of Maine’s Senate and House of Representatives, urging them to vote to impeach Governor LePage over these absurd comments.

Once again, the petition can be found at Change.org by clicking here.

    Why don’t you provide a link that proves he said this? I would like to hear it before I pass judgment. It’s actually kinda hilarious.

    • The Truth

      He said it. But it is really happening. Of course it is. Everywhere. There’s nothing racist about it. I can’t stand LePage but in this case he’s just calling it as it is.

    • The Truth

      just do a web search. It’s all over the place on the news.

  • Wes N Lauren

    It really is not if you know the smear campaigns that originally ended legal marijuana. Racism was the core of prohibition.

  • The Truth

    sound’s like a great motivation to legalize in Maine.

    That really is not an intelligent thing to say. And a poor reflection of his upbringing. He’s got it all wrong. Names, race and pregnancy have nothing to do with the enemy. The real enemy is killer street drugs like meth or heroine or crack. Where your life can end LITERALLY after 1 experience on any of these fatal substances. So, he’s saying as long as your white named Tod or Ted or Theadore or Kip and smoke crack then rob some homes and hold up liqour stores then beat some old ladies up for their purse to buy more crack that’s ok? Where is this guy from? Was he even born in the USA? Does this guy really want the public to believe he’s smart? President Obama has already stated marijuana is safer than alcohol.

    Sounds like a descendant of Harry J Anslinger! Smear and fear tactics, racism etc. Hell, even the word Marijuana is a made up name. It has roots in ancient China but just a few sounded out syllables but not enough for a whole word. Then in the early 1900’s Mexicans coming here for work brought their own version of relaxation and they called it marigana. Anslinger added a few letters w/the more ethnic, diabolical sounding term”MARIJUANA!!! It seems cannabis was just not quite evil enough!!! Be warned, dialogue like this and Paul LePage’s draw fear, anger and bigotry.
