Make Phone Calls To Pass Marijuana Legalization Now!


marijuana phoneby David Borden, Stopthedrugwar.org

The news cycle is awash with polls and news about the close race for president. But the most important votes happening next month may be historic initiatives to legalize and regulate marijuana — and these are also going to be close.

You can help these and other initiatives we’re supporting, and I hope that between now and Election Day you’ll be able to. First, we have partnered with FireDogLake and the “Just Say Now” campaign to do phonebanking in support of Colorado’s Amendment 64 and Oregon’s Measure 80. (Other initiatives may be added to the site too.) Visit http://fdl.platform.webstrong.com/dna/network/groups/ to open an account — select StoptheDrugWar.org as your “group,” if you’re willing to help us in that way — and make phone calls from your home or anywhere for legalization! There are two options for Colorado, by the way — one of them general, the other for women to call other women voters in the state.

There are other state initiatives that need your support, including marijuana legalization in Washington, medical marijuana in Arkansas and Montana and Massachusetts, and an important initiative in California to reform the state’s draconian ”three-strikes” law. Please visit our Election 2012 Resource Page at http://stopthedrugwar.org/election2012 for links to the campaign web sites where you can find volunteer information; the audio recording of our 9/27/12 teleconference with representatives of the legalization initiatives; and a link to our full election coverage archive page, where you can find feature stories we’ve published in Drug War Chronicle on almost all of these initiatives, Phil’s weekly “Initiative Watch” feature, and more.

Please donate to help StoptheDrugWar.org to continue to grow and support the movement, to continue the press for legalization, and to prepare for the next stage after one or more of these measures passes in November. For donations of $35 or more, you can receive one of the two new books or the video that we’re offering —  – donate $95 or more for all three — click here for all the details.

Thank you for standing with drug policy reform at this amazing and critical time. I believe that something big will happen this November — with your help.

  1. I say if you want to legalize medicinal marijuana you DON’T want Romney! He doesn’t even think a woman has the right to make choices about her own body, if she gets pregnant from being raped. You think he cares about anyone else’s freedom of choice about anything? I don’t. Mormon, and wants to repeal Roe v. Wade, and impose his views on everyone, so the Presidential campaign is close and it should matter to you, too. -that’s all I’m sayin’… States spend millions to fight it, and they could make billions, by taxing it, and legalizing it would create more jobs for those in every state that does legalize it…….. all I’m sayin’… VOTE! Obama said let the states decide…. freedom of choice and if you drink alcohol, you shouldn’t be holier than thou about it (medicinal marijuana) especially if you’ve never had a medical condition that called for it or even ever tried it, because you don’t know what you are talking about. It relieves nausea in general and for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and AIDS patients taking a ‘cocktail’ of prescription pills, it relieves pain, insomnia, anxiety, anorexia and symptoms of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) for rape survivors and soldiers returning from battle, plus a myriad of other things. Otherwise, Doctors wouldn’t be prescribing it…… so don’t attack me, or you are saying you are smarter than ALL the people who went through medical school and prescribe for all these reasons everyday, and that makes you look silly… <3
