Christina Tobin: Proposition 19 Press Conference in Oakland

Press release was sent to us this morning prior to the event, but I was only able to get to this now. Tobin is the Libertarian candidate for California Secretary of State. -p


MILL VALLEY, Calif. – Christina Tobin, founder and chair of The Free and Equal Elections Foundation, today announced she will host a press conference in support of Proposition 19, the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010. The press conference will take place at the Yes on 19 headquarters at 776 Broadway in Oakland, Tuesday, September 21, 2010.

Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, Yes on 19 Field Coordinator James Rigdon and Gerald Murray, national youth coordinator for Laura Chinchilla’s 2010 Costa Rica presidential campaign, will join Tobin to speak at the press conference.

Topics to be addressed will include Proposition 19, U.S. occupation of Costa Rica, genetically modified organisms, preventing Top Two from spreading across the country and implementing proportional representation nationwide. Video of the press conference will be posted on the Free and Equal website later this week.

“Voting Yes on Proposition 19 gives people the opportunity, like almost never before, to vote for liberty, common sense, fiscal responsibility, practicality and less intrusive government – all at the same time!” said Honorable Jim Gray, a vocal supporter of marijuana legalization. “This will be one of the most important and pivotal elections of my lifetime!”

“Passing Prop 19 will allow the voters to strike a tremendous blow to violent cartels, larger than any law enforcement effort ever could. Marijuana prohibition policy has failed just like alcohol prohibition once did. We have an opportunity to have safer communities if we choose to regulate, control and tax cannabis in November,” said Dale Sky Jones of the Yes on Prop 19 campaign and Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University. “Free and Equal has been a wonderful supporter of this movement, supporting the passage of Prop. 19.”

    MEXICO needs to legalize marijuana NOW. All the other states are legalizing medical marijuana. Forget social responsibility, get that MONEY from the US sales. Mexico should farm the marijuana and legally export that to the USA to feed the pot addicts there. There is a LOT of money to be made from American’s dependency on POT. A lot of jobs for Mexicans cultivating pot, therefore MEXICO needs to get in this game. Mexico can legalize POT sales to outside of Mexico and make pot use within their country still illegal. All that country has to do is FEED the USA with pot. That is all the matters. US MONEY coming in to their country. Mexico should legalize POT NOW. No waiting and arguing. Mexico should legalize cultivation of pot for export now.

    Next press conference should be about At home and abroad: “mission accomplished”…NOT!

    Much as they did with the war in Iraq, Obama and his brilliant team have come up with a totally awesome solution for the recession (or depression, as many would say): declare victory without leaving.

    In Iraq, that meant that 50,000 US combat troops (reclassified as non-combat, but still engaged in combat) remained on the ground, along with a large number of independent military contractors. On the home front, it means we still have about 10% official unemployment, but more like 20% when those who are no longer counted as officially unemployed because they have been out of work too long are factored in, along with those who are employed part time and would like to be working full time. But, according to the “Mission Accomplished” team in power, the recession ended in June 2009. Not that anyone noticed, or anything.

    The power of wishful thinking has long been known to work miracles, after all, and if we all close our eyes and pretend, we can just spend a bunch of money we don’t have, right? Click your heels three times and repeat after me: Happy times are here again, and Eastasia has always been at war with Oceania.
