The consequence of marijuana legalization can be a disaster for medical marijuana patients and the power of targeted voter contact as a mechanism to win elections for marijuana initiatives are the subjects of this episode of Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense.
Washington passed a marijuana legalization measure in 2012 with provisions protecting medical marijuana patients but legislators are folding patients into the legalization with such possible negative consequences of no longer being able to grow their own medicine and being forced to pay the same exorbitant taxes as recreational users. Kari Boiter, Washington State Coordinator for Americans for Safe Access explains how the marijuana legalization initiative has impacted medical marijuana patients and how patients are fighting back to preserve their rights under Washington's exisiting medical marijuana laws.
Yucca Valley. a small California desert town in San Bernardino County, is vying to become the first muncipality in what is the largest county in the United States to allow for the sale of medical marijuana. Jim Stewart, Campaign Coordinator for Measure X, reveals their plans for getting voters to pass their initiative using volunteers to undertake a program of target voter contact.
The Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act (MCLR) is one of at least five initiatives to legalize marijuana being drafted for the California’s Nov. 2016 ballot. On July 13th MCLR submitted an updated version to the California AG’s office which included the public input gathered since the last filing along with comments from CalNORML and information gathered from Gavin Newsom’s Blue Ribbon Commission.
John Lee from Americans for Policy Reform (AFPR), the group behind the MCLR 2016 Initiative, will discuss the new language, explain how this initiative differs from the others and reveal their program to qualify for the Nov. 2016 ballot.
An on-again, off-again dispensing ordinance, the city refusing tax payments from medical marijuana dispensaries required by a voter approved initiative and spending up to a million dollars to close existing tax paying dispensaries is just part of the conundrum roiling the small desert town of Vallejo California.
The show’s second guest is attorney James Anthony who represents a consortium of the affected Vallejo dispensaries. Attorney Anthony provides an insider’s look at what is going on, why it is going on and what is being done to protect patient access as local elected officials egged on by local law enforcement, run amuck.
Oregon is undergoing major upheavals as the legislature literally turns last November’s marijuana legalization measure on its head. Medical marijuana appears headed into oblivion and the limited and reasonable taxation measures enacted by voters may skyrocket.
As a creator and proponent of previous legalization initiatives in Oregon, Paul Stanford understands the legislative process and how it can and does mess with the intent of the voters. Explaining Oregon’s initiative process which allows for the legislative to alter voter-passed initiatives, Paul will illuminate what is unfolding and how initiative proponents are rallying to counter this devious and underhanded attempt by the legislature to redo Oregon’s marijuana legalization initiative.

A blogger who believes rape should be legalized has launched an “International Meetup Day” where supporters will gather in various locations throughout the world. Daryush Valizadeh is known for his controversial books that advise men on the best methods to have sex with women and advocates that rape be made legal inside a private home. Valizadeh, better known as Roosh V, runs the website Return of Kings that will host 165 events in 43 countries. Hosts have been asked to wait at meeting points all around the world Saturday at 8 p.m. for men who are interested in attending. The men are instructed to ask the question, “Do you know where I can find a pet shop?” Members who are part of the group will then respond, “Yes it’s right here.”Which I think the little code will be changed by the time you read this since the Police are watching.

Maine is considered a key state to pass a marijuana legalization initiative and two groups are seeking to put an initiative on the November 2016 ballot. One is the Washington DC based Marijuana Policy Project which has funded successful legalization initiatives in Colorado and Oregon. The other is Legalize Maine, a local group which has a different approach to legalization and is working to put their initiative on the ballot. Why Maine is such a hot bed for marijuana legalization and how the two initiatives differ will be discussed by our first guest Campaign Coordinator for Legalize Maine Peter McCarrier.

Abibifahodie (Black Liberation),
The white-sex war is on. The smallhats (white so-called jews) and their Protocols to the Learned Elders of Zion are here. The international push to sexualize children is now becoming a matter of open public discussion. The whites are pushing this on our people all across the globe; and in amerikkka, they are working day and night to make it a matter of legal, public policy.
It is past time for all of us to take action. We need a Straight Black Pride Movement (SBPM) chapter in every corner of the Earth to protect Afrikan culture, people, and especially children.
Tune into our program tonight and discuss this topic.
