Spread the Word! Get out and Vote!

Yesterday in California the initiative to legalize marijuana passed and is set to be voted on for the november ballot!

With Californians already showing 65% support for the legalization in recent polls things seem to be looking up for our hero for the first time in a long long while. Check out the full story from the the LA Times here:

Measure to legalize Marijuana will be on California’s November Ballot

An initiative to legalize marijuana and allow it to be sold and taxed will appear on the November ballot, state election officials announced Wednesday, triggering what will probably be a much-watched campaign that once again puts California on the forefront of the nation’s debate over whether to soften drug laws.

The number of valid signatures reported by Los Angeles County, submitted minutes before Wednesday’s 5 p.m. deadline, put the measure well beyond the 433,971 it needed to be certified. Supporters turned in 694,248 signatures, collecting them in every county except Alpine. County election officials estimated that 523,531 were valid.

Next step is to get out there and vote Californians!! I’m up in Vancouver at the moment but I will be sending in my absentee ballot via mail! If we all get out there and vote this time its for real!

Peace and keep blowing your smoke proud people, soon we’ll be able to do it free!
