[ccsf-drug] Fw: A crucial deadline
- One more opportunity for commonsense drug policy. If tobacco and alcohol are legal--and kill more than all illicit substances combined, surely it is absurd to have marijuana remain illegal--thus providing law enforcement one more opportunity to potentially ruin someone's life and future via arrest for responsibly using this plant (as the vast majority do).
Let us work together to make this world a better place. Let us be guided by Reason, Compassion and a strong commitment to Justice, Equality and Human Rights
Quotes for the day from history changers
Martin Luther King, Jr.:
*Life's most urgent question is: what are you doing for others?
*Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
*We have guided missiles and misguided men.
*States are not moral agents, people are, and can impose moral standards on powerful institutions.
*The more you can increase fear of drugs and crime, welfare mothers, immigrants and aliens, the more you control all the people.----- Forwarded Message ----

Subject: A crucial deadline
June 30 marks a crucial fundraising deadline for the Control & Tax Cannabis Campaign. It's the last day to make a contribution that will be counted in our fundraising report for the spring fiscal quarter.
We all know that the press, politicos, and our opponents will use our fundraising numbers as a barometer to measure the grassroots strength of this campaign. So it's critical for us to show them that we are raising the resources we need to win in November.
That's why Control and Tax Cannabis 2010 has set a goal of raising $50,000 online between now and next Wednesday, June 30. It's a big goal, but with your help, I know we can reach it.
Can you step up today with a first-time contribution of $5 or more?
We're not even halfway through 2010, but already, it's proving to be a bellwether year for cannabis reform.
- The big news this week comes from New York, where the state is on track to introduce dispensary permits for medical cannabis as part of its appropriations bill.
- San Diego, San Jose, and Sacramento are all working on ordinances to allow for medical cannabis dispensaries.
- Earlier this year, the Washington D.C. City Council passed a bill to allow for dispensaries and commercial cannabis cultivation, which will likely go into effect soon.
And make no mistake: We're not done yet.
The most important thing we can do to initiate real cannabis reform this year is to pass our initiative in California to legalize, control, and tax cannabis. By contributing $5 or more today, you'll help make this year truly historic.
The press, the pundits, and our opponents are watching closely to see how we do on June 30. So I hope you can dig deep and give what you can.
Thanks so much for helping us reach our online fundraising goal.
Sincerely, Richard Lee
Proponent, Tax Cannabis 2010
