How to Help Legalize Marijuana in California

You are probably sitting at home reading this, while enjoying some recreational cannabis use, and thinking to yourself ‘how can I help get marijuana legalized.’ It is much easier than you might think. When I was in college, I read a famous political science quote, ‘the most important thing in politics is money, and the second most important thing is also money.’ Cash buys ad time on TV, the radio, in major news publications, etc. The more campaign money you have, the easier it is to get the word out, and therefore, the chances of winning at election time are higher; it’s that simple.

So help support the cause by making a small donation. The Obama campaign raised more money than any other campaign in US history by receiving millions of small donations. The California Control & Tax Cannabis Act could to the same thing if people stepped up and donated! People outside of California should also consider donating, because if California votes ‘yes’ to legalize marijuana, then it would increase the momentum of legalizing marijuana in other states. Here is an e-mail that I received from the campaign that explains how to get involved:

Dear Friend,

I’ve been an activist for over twenty years, and let me tell you something: This year feels different. This year feels special. That’s because 2010 is the year we finally legalize, control, and tax cannabis in California.


But it won’t happen by itself. We need you to step up.

That’s why, today, I’m asking you to set up a fundraising page and raise $100 or more by April 20 for the Control & Tax Cannabis 2010 campaign.

It’s easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Click here to get started.
  2. Set up your own personal fundraising page.
  3. Invite your friends to give $5, $25, or whatever they can afford.

So what are you waiting for?

Click here to create your personal fundraising page — and reach your $100 goal!

Just imagine: If 420 people step up to the plate and reach their $100 goal, we will raise $42,000 by April 20. That will go a long way toward educating prospective voters and winning on November 2.

Setting up a personal fundraising page and informing your friends will only take a minute — but your impact will truly make a difference.

Thank you so much for your support. I know I can count on you to reach your goal — and that together, we’ll raise $42,000 by April 20.

Sincerely,


Richard Lee
Proponent, Control & Tax Cannabis 2010

P.S. If you’re ready to go the extra mile, supporters will also be hosting house parties all across the country on April 20. Click the following link to sign up to host a house party: http://www.taxcannabis.org/houseparty

  1. That’s not the quickest way to “legalize [sic] marijuana.” The quickest way to end prohibiiton is to recognize Cannabis as a “strategic food resource” as six American Presidents have done. FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, and Clinton all signed Executive Orders identifying hemp as critical to national security. Under present circumstances, failing to do so is a “misprision of treason.”

    All the proposed legislation does is concede rightful jurisdiction (i.e. perpetuates wrongful jurisdiction) over an agricultural resource that’s both unique and essential. Now, you and the chemical/military-industrial ‘quasi-gummint’ may think that a murderous, immoral, economically and spiritually bankrupt regime has rightful jurisdiction over your freedom to farm, but I don’t think so. Our forefarmers didn’t die for the freedom to complain.

    If we all recognize the true value of Cannabis as an essential “strategic resource” available by “essential civilian demand” this May in Sacramento, “We the People” can reassess the true value of Cannabis for ourselves. Cannabis agriculture, manufacture and trade are a threat to endless wars (foreign and domestic), chemical-industrial monocultures, and continued petrochemical addiction.

    Don’t be a fool. Cannabis is too valuable to be within the rightful jurisdiction of any court. “WAKE UP, STAND UP…”

    Tax and regulate Cannabis? It will continue to be your worst nightmare. Bureaucratic over-regulation of Cannabis will bog down the free organic agricultural market at a time when coordinated regional production of organic biofuels and protein could make agricultural economics “Gaiatherapeutic” (Earth-healing) and sustainable. Government will give your tax dollars to Mons[ters]anto to genetically modify Cannabis. They will control the seed and our kids will have no chance at all for setting things right. That’s a dirty trick on them we all are responsible for. Misprision of responsibility to future generations…

    Don’t go for the sucker punch. Cannabis has never been truly illegal because in reality it’s essential. Farmers are better off self-regulating region by region to decide which cultivars* are appropriate for the local soil and climate conditions and begin acclimatizing seed stocks for desired production results.

    Support “essential civilian demand” for Cannabis with the California Cannabis Ministry in Sacramento this May 23rd on the steps of the State Capitol, or watch as synergistic collapse accelerates. If you can’t make the scene, send toxic petro dollars to me and convert worthless US currency to organic agriculturally-based “dolphin economics”**.

    We have nothing to fear but the atmosphere itself. Time is the limiting factor in the equation of survival.

    Drugs don’t make seeds, herbs do. God gave us every “herb bearing seed.” Our freedom to farm “every herb bearing seed” is the first test test of religious freedom.

    There, now you know. Cannabis is more than legal, it’s essential. Now go, “sow hemp everywhere…”

    *”A cultivar is a cultivated variety of a plant that has been deliberately selected for specific desirable characteristics (such as the colour and form of the flower, yield of the crop, disease resistance etc.). When propagated correctly the plants of a particular cultivar retain their special characteristics.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultivar

    ** Dolphin economics, def: “You help me help you help everyone.” Based in abundance, proven sustainable over 30 million years

  2. I think everyone in the USA should get on board this and support freedom. This is our big chance to get it started. Why shouldn’t we be free to live life as we want. Every day of the week I campaygn for the vote in Ca. I am amazed at how ignorant people are about hemp.
