We have some very exciting news: California’s Adult Use of Marijuana Act is officially on the ballot this November!

Now, as the campaign kicks into high gear, the real work begins. Legalizing and regulating adult use of marijuana in one of the nation’s most influential states will be a huge victory for drug policy reform, but to make sure it happens, we need to reach California voters and tell them why it’s so imperative to legalize and regulate marijuana.

Legalization and regulation of marijuana will create revenue estimated at more than $1 billion in California, in addition to the hundreds of millions of dollars the state will save in criminal justice costs currently being wasted on arresting, prosecuting, and imprisoning people for nonviolent marijuana offenses.

Californians need to hear from pro-reform law enforcers, one of the most influential groups in past successful legalization initiatives, on why legalization, regulation, and control is a more practical and ethical approach to marijuana policy. LEAP is ready to help bring legalization to California: our speakers are out in force, making presentations, talking to the media, writing opinion-editorial pieces, doing everything they can to support legalization efforts and connect with California voters. But we need your help to ensure a shift toward more responsible marijuana policy.

Please donate now to support LEAP’s work in California and other states on the verge of marijuana reform.

Fucking Nazis. Extreme right and extreme left are now openly acting like complete assholes and routinely committing acts of violence.

At least 10 hurt at chaotic, bloody neo-Nazi rally at Capitol

Anti-Fascist and fascist groups clashed in several areas on the grounds of the State Capitol resulting in at least 10 people injured – five being stabbed – and the closing of surrounding streets as more than 100 police in riot gear raced to subdue the violence.

So, Hillary Clinton won before a massive number of ballots were even opened for counting?

So much for the integrity of the electoral system…

Monsanto’s Roundup Kills and Damages More than Weeds

  “California law requires certain substances identified by IARC to be listed as carcinogenic, the OEHHA said.”
Monsanto Sues California Over Roundup

 

FRESNO, Calif. (CN) – In a preemptive strike, Monsanto sued California to try to stop it from listing glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, as a carcinogen.
Monsanto sued the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) on Thursday in Fresno County Court, seeking an injunction to stop it from glyphosate to the state’s Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

…The OEHHA announced in September last year that it planned to add glyphosate to the Prop. 65 list after the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), based in France, classified it in March as a probable human carcinogen.
