HELP COLLECT SIGNATURES FOR LEGALIZATION
TO REGULATE MARIJUANA LIKE WINE
Thanks to your extraordinary efforts, we are on track for collecting
10,000 signatures in our first two weeks of operation. Final
results will be announce by PCI Consultants, who will be independently
verifying and validating our signatures. PCI Consultants will
also be releasing results of a poll and analysis, based upon feedback
from their army of petitioners.
That's right, the long awaited poll and analysis showing voter
attitudes towards Regulating Marijuana Like Wine is coming next
Monday. An independent report is being prepared by Angelo
Paparella, the CEO of PCI Consultants, who was the primary signature
gatherer for Prop. 215 and for the recent San Jose referendum.
This report and our two week total for validated signatures will be
released by Mr. Paparella on Nov. 14, 2011.
Mr. Paparella's report will be as credible as they come, because it is
from petitioners who are serving on the front lines of various cities
and towns across California. This will be real world data, based
upon empirical observations and analysis by veterans of the petitioning
process. Voters can lie on phone polls, but on the street, they either
sign the petition or they don't and you know for sure how they
feel. This poll and analysis will tell us what people really
think about our initiative and what our chances of success really are.
Based upon preliminary results from a recent 28 day campaign to obtain
and verify 48,000 signatures in San Jose, Mr. Paparella believes we are
already seeing a major shift in public attitudes towards legalization.
A recent Gallup Poll confirms this major shift with a record-high 50%
of Americans who now say the use of marijuana should be made legal, up
from 46% last year. That same poll shows a stunning 55% favoring
legalization in the West.
Another 10,000 petitions have just been printed and are already in
distribution, bringing the total number to 26,000 petitions now on the
streets. Legal size petitions 8.5x14 with room for ten signatures
can now be downloaded, along with three signature petitions on 8.5x11
standard size paper. Several offices are being opened to store
and distribute petitions, including the Libertarian Party State Office
Libertarian Party of California

Panorama City, CA 91402-4935
Meanwhile, a major funder has asked us for a legal analysis of how the
Regulate Marijuana LIke Wine Act can effectively deal with the latest
federal assault. As you know, we saw this coming and created an
initiative that provides California with the opportunity to exercise
its 10th amendment rights and opt out of the CSA. This funder has
come around 180 degree since the federal raids began and is serious
about helping us.
We are encouraged that the same legal arguments we have been making for
opting out of the CSA are now being made by NORML attorneys to halt
federal raids. In fact, NORML has gone so far as to call for full
legalization rather than any more medical marijuana initiatives:
"With so many onerous institutional discriminations and
restrictions-and the price of medical cannabis remaining inordinately
high because of the existence of cannabis Prohibition-patients who
genuinely need access to this low toxicity, naturally occurring herbal
medicine would be far better served by ending cannabis Prohibition
entirely than in trying to carve out special legal exemptions to the
--Allen F. St. Pierre Executive Director NORML
We are pulling ahead financially as well. Recently, our
treasurer, Stephen Collett CPA, informed me that he expects our
financial report Form 460 to show over $100,000 in donations for the
fourth quarter of this year.
In closing, I'd like to announce that in addition to our campaign
making history with endorsements by conservatives like Congressman Dana
Rohrabacher, and celebrities like Kenny Loggins, we just became the
first marijuana initiative to get a video endorsement by a former
governor and current presidential candidate, Gary Johnson. Other
endorsements include Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, Judge James
P. Gray (ret.), Deputy Chief Stephen Downing (ret.), Assemblymember
Chris Norby, Lieutenant Commander Diane Goldstein (ret.), Ed Rosenthal,
Keith Stroup, Thomas Chong, Rick Steves, Vivian McPeak, Lynnette Shaw,
and Stephen DeAngelo.
Thus far, the only serious concerns about our initiative have been
polling and funding. After this Monday, the polling question will
be settled. Give us a few more weeks and the funding question
will also be settled. This campaign is going all the way and you
now have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in this
history making adventure. Working together, we CAN create the
change we want to see in our world!

QUOTES BY STEVE KUBBY:
CANNOT BE LICENSED, liberties cannot be regulated and rights
cannot be granted. History teaches us that when the rights and
liberties of a free people have restrictions upon them, they cease to
be freedoms and rights. Instead, the government becomes like a king,
bestowing privileges upon the chosen few and servitude upon everyone
"CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE AND DO NOT HAVE RIGHTS - Nothing
infuriates me more than when retarded Supreme Court Justices talk about
'States Rights' and 'Corporation Rights'. Under our US
Constitution, only human beings have rights and those rights are
inseparable and inalienable, meaning they can't be taken from us or
transferred to another entity."
